Achieve Test Prep does not issue degrees. From their homepage, down at the bottom in fine print:

** Achieve Test Prep is a college education consultant and test preparation center that helps you earn your degree faster. Achieve Test Prep is not a college and does not issue degrees or give college credit. The programs listed above and elsewhere on this website are test preparation programs offered by Achieve Test Prep to prepare you to take exams from an independent accredited college or an independent testing center. Achieve purposefully remains independent and does not align itself with any college nor do we commit to any agreements with any college. By being truly independent, we offer a non-biased approach to recommending the best possible college route to our students. While Achieve Test Prep is very knowledgeable on the policies and procedures of many colleges, the final decisions about credits and degrees rest with the colleges. You must independently apply for and be accepted into a college.

Have you looked at BSN programs to see if they offer a bridge? Depending on where you intend to work, the job requirements or preferences may be for BSN prepared RNs.

They've been sued by the AG in several states. As Rose Queen stated above- they are NOT a school. A bridge program would be nice- but even if you can't find one nothing to stop you from pursuing your ADN.

Yep - I had to move to start my bridge program but I am very happy that I made that decision. A friend of mine started over at a community college and it will take her 1 year for pre reqs and 2 year program whereas I will be done in 15 months. It just depends on what you are capable of doing to get where you are wanting to go...

WGU has a prelicensure bridge program that is all online minus clinicals that you have to travel for once a semester... but you have to complete 11 prereqs before being considered for the program.
