Any CA LVNs doing a hybrid bridge program out of state?

I'm considering an hybrid bridge program in a different state and fly in for the clinical part. Anyone else go that route? CA is so competitive and time consuming. Ugh.

I would be interested in this if I knew for sure it was a viable option.  From what I have been able to glean (from the internet only) that might not work with licensing?  Also, it seemed like a lot of the schools out of states wanted you to have their sate LPN license first and didn't accept out of state licenses.  I have been trying to bridge for several years now and am finding it nearly impossible in California.  I would love a hybrid option and a flying as opposed to actually having to move to another state for the duration of a program.  

Do you have any solid information?

I know one LVN living in LA but attending a hybrid program in UT. She fly’s in for clinicals, her program is too pricey for me. I know a few going to a program in FL too. I’m considering FL, they have several hybrid options. Some programs will require you to be a licensed LVN/LPN in their state and that’s no big deal just transfer it. Most FL students are taking NCLEX in fl and transferring back to CA, again not a problem.
