I read in a different thread about the credits you earn in the Casa Loma LVN Program not being transferable. How do you go about getting into an RN program? Do you have to take the prereqs at the school you wish to attend, or are you able to get directly into the program based on your education at Casa Loma?

Thanks! :)

You would have to take the prerequisite courses at a community college and then apply to the RN program. If there is an LVN to RN bridge program available at a particular school, then you could apply to that program. Otherwise, you apply just as any other student would.

My daughter graduated from Casa Loma and had to take all of the prerequisites at local colleges to be eligible to apply to RN programs. She was disappointed, but knew that this would be necessary when she enrolled at Casa Loma.

I would rather go into the program knowing that I need to spend only one or two semesters at community college if it means getting into a program with experience. I'm half way done with my prereqs right now, but I would be really impatient if I have to get on a waiting list. At least I would be able to work as an LVN, right?

Yes, being an LVN has two advantages. You can work in that capacity and you can sometimes use an LVN to RN bridge program to get into an RN program without all the hassle that those without the license go through.

I think that that is great considering how full the schools in the Pasadena area are. I would rather pay the $20,000 something and have that capability to work and go to school at the same time. I'm only 19, but I'm not going to have the stamina forever. :)

You're thinking logically. Good luck with your plans to enter the nursing field.
