I am hoping to find some accelerated nursing program in crazy California. So far there is nothing under 2 years that I can find.

Before I dign with Western Governors University I decided to see if anyone knows something that I don't. I just hate the idea of another 2 years......yuk

Thanks

An LPN to RN program should only be 1 year. Have you not done the pre reqs and thats why its 2 years?

It takes twice or three times as long to accomplish anything in CA.

Not for BSN no. You have all your nursing classes, clinical hours plus capstones. Its a lot.

I do not believe any U.S. schools offer a LPN to BSN in under 2 years. Usually the LPN to RN is 1 year, then a Rn to BSN is an additional 5 semesters. The problem is the classes need to be taken in a particular order and they do not allow people to jump ahead or take on more. Assuming that you had no breaks and were accepted into each program one after another, it would take you approximately 2.5 years.

Must be different in every state. Where I'm from, LPN to RN (whether BSN or ADN) takes one year for nursing core as long as all ore Reqs are done for the ADN or BSN program being applied for. Most students end up taking 2 years for BSN purely because the amount of required classes is intense. But if they could power through, it would be done in a year. If no pre reqs are done, then it could take 2-3. Just depends on what has been completed already. However, there is maybe one or two schools in my state that offer the LPN-RN BSN bridge.

I did LVN to BSN in 2 years and woah I can't imagine doing it in one. Honestly I wouldn't recommend that. It sounds like a nightmare.

Thanks nurses. I guess I am impatient. 2.5 years is what it will have to be. All I need now is a job in a hospital to carry me that long. :yes:
