I have heard that you have to set up your own clinicals. I'm in a state that doesn't accept ISU programs, but I'm still interested. I could move to a state where they are accepted and do my clinicals there.

How hard is it to find your clinical facilities - does ISU help? Does ISU already have some agreements with hospitals?

If you all could give me some detailed info on your experience, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!

If your home state does not accept the degree from ISU then you won't be eligible for licensing in your home state. You need to confirm with your board of nursing.

ISU School of Nursing maintains a list of agreements already in place for clinical facilities with contact information.

The comment that you would not be eligible for licensing in a state if the LPN-BS Track is not available in that state is not correct. Please do verify ..contact info https://www.ncsbn.org/index.htm

Yes, I understand the clinical info, as I've read it all. However, I've also heard that people where finding it difficult to get their clinicals set up, that's why I asked the question here.

Thanks Mitczak, I appreciate that link. I didn't know there was a link to all the states' boards.

I live in CA and they are awful about nursing programs. Fortunately I'm not worried about working in CA, as I'll be moving after I get my license in another state.
