I am a LPN looking to become a RN. I'm currently taking classes at CSCC to apply for the program there, OUZ or COTC. I went to Hocking college and have found it's hard to transfer because everywhere else has different prereq's. I am supposed to have tuition assitance Jan. 1 that I can use at COTC and not the other 2 places. This would require different prereq's....again. My thought is it's better to cut my losses now and work toward COTC since it would be less student loans. Anyone do the LPN to RN at COTC, and if so how hard is it to get in after you complete the prereq's???:uhoh3: Wish it wasn't so hard to transfer. I love my job and am not willing to give it up to go back to Hocking (5 days a week!)

I just started a new job with someone who did the RN program at COTC, she absolutely loved it. I wish it was closer to my home as I am an LPN trying to obtain my associates. I am currently attending Shawnee State but the program is so long even already being an LPN. Thinking of checking into Hockings LPN/RN evening weekend program.

I did two qtr. of Hocking's night and weekend LPN to RN then quit. It's a good program if you have the time to dedicate to it. I couldn't work full time in col. then go there 2 nights a week plus clinicals every other Sat and Sun. on top of being a wife/mom. It takes 2 years to complete. Columbus State is too hard to get into so I think I'm going to stick with trying for OUZ and COTC. Good Luck to you!

It is soooo hard trying to work and go to school at the same time. I just started a new job in a physicians office, even though it is part time working all day then going to class in the evening is very hard. I am checking into doing the Excelsior program I know a couple of LPN's that are in the program, one just passed her RN-NCLEX. She sais it is convienent if you have to keep working. She had 3 jobs while doing the program. Good luck whatever route you go.;)
