Advice? LPN to RN program

Posted
ANW10 ANW10 (New) New

Hello,

In December 2017 I signed up for the LPN to RN program. I got a letter in saying I was accepted, but I come to find out that enrollment services put me in the traditional ADN program, and I'd have to take classes that I would've been able to test out of because I'm an LPN. I talked to the person in charge of the program and she said that the program is full for fall of 2018, and they can't accommodate additional students. I'm going to my adviser to have them put me in the right program, but I don't know if I should just start in the fall and take the extra classes, or wait until spring and be in the actual LPN to RN program.... Advice anyone?

What would you be able to test out of? What happens if you "fail" to test out? What is the difference in cost of the programs and length of the programs?

Basically I'd take the class Transitions from LPN to RN. So I wouldn't have to take Fundamentals I and Pharmacology I which I've taken as an LPN... and it takes one semester off so I'd graduate sooner. This would be the cheaper option.

Take what you have - you're in. Just do it.

That's strange I'm doing the professional route and will have to retake both fundamentals and pharmacology. I originally got accepted to both but with the traditional route they allowed to test out of the class. If you don't test out at least you get the chance to refresh your knowledge.
