I keep going back and forth about this decision and would love to hear some other opinions as I am completely torn. I have my associates degree from my local CC but with limited seats and hundreds of applicants along with my 3.5 GPA I am having a hard time getting into their RN program.I have the opportunity to start an 18 month LPN program that is run by a school system and is nationally accredited and a very good passing rate. The school has the same schedule as the public school system so off on holidays and summer and inclement weather. I would graduate in April 2016. Travel time each way could be 30-60 min depending on traffic from my home. Also on the table is MCI (ECPI), program is 16 months so I would start in Aug 2014 and graduate in Dec 2015 with a RN degree. ECPI is regionally accredited with pass rates of above state and national scores. Fast paced with 5 week courses. Travel time to campus is 10 mins tops.I will say money is not an issue so the fact that the LPN program is $8,000 and MCI's RN program is $57,000:uhoh3: will not make a difference. I will not have to take out any loans for either program. I feel my heart is leaning towards the LPN program because I KNOW for a fact the program has great instructors and track records at clinical with a small class size. I did speak with a very well respected brick and mortar university and the program director said that I would have no problem being eligible for their RN-BSN program (completely online) if I graduated form MCI and passed my RN boards so that was reassuring. Top it all of with being a military family and moving in 3 years I just don't know what to do. If I go the LPN route I'd have to work 6 months before applying to a Rn program, then go from Rn-BSN which would not be feasible before we transfer, meaning I would move with my LPN license and a year of experience vs RN with experience and probably in an BSN program.So sorry this is so long I am just so lost and confused, please help. Thank you in advance for your time.
