I just started the regents transation from LVN to RN study. I am looking for others who are doing this program or who have done it .
Hey. I graduated from Regents with an ASN degree in Dec 98. It took me 15 months to go from LPN to RN. I worked in an office in family practice/urgent care for 13 years,started to get burned-out so I started the ADN program, after seeing an aquaintance successfully complete it. Now Im a staff RN at hosp., and am really enjoying the career change, especially the extra money.
I took 2 courses every 2 months, did all my own research using the Regents free study guides , passed the clinical and finally graduated. I did this while working full time, and Im married with 3 children. I feel Regents offers a wonderful program, but requires the ability to work independently and have much dedication and determination.
Thankfully my employer at the time offered $1000 per year on education, it would have took me longer had I paid for it all myself even though I feel the program is very affordable. I wish you luck and feel free to E-mail me with ???.
