I'm thinking of starting lvn to rn bridge online/ hybrid program but I'm not sure. I want to know if this is harder or should I just stick to the day program monday to friday instead. I think the online/ hybrid program would be better as a working LVN but I'm not sure of how structured it is. Has anyone taken the online lvn to rn program and can you please tell me your experience.

Also whoever has taken the day program all on site should also tell me their experience please.

And i currently live in california so Galen's tution in san antonio is actually cheap for me compared to the schools in california.

Thank you

I have friends who did both via the Tampa location and I heard nothing but good things about the school. Both sound tough though, they have high expectations for their students! Academically this is great! I was a bit turned off when I looked into it because they bragged to me how strict their attendance policy is and how a student who had just graduated had her son die during the last semester but didn't miss class so she could graduate.

Whether or not you choose online vs all day is something only you can answer. You have to do some self reflection. Can you work on your own? Make yourself a schedule and stick to it? Are you good at self teaching and working primarily alone or would you be more comfortable in a class? It's a very personal choice.

Good luck!
