Congrats on passing!! That's my plan, although I won't be ready to start my package until next summer. I have been trying forever to get a spot for the RN program, but our school only admits 12 students per YEAR, and they're selected by lottery out of a wait list of 100's. I finally said forget it and am going to do the 1-year LPN program and bridge to RN.
I wish I could find some specific confirmation about ISU's program and the NCP though... The answer the recruiter gave me seems to confirm it would be accepted, but it was also kind of a generic reply. I know I read somewhere that online programs weren't acceptable, but I can't find the post anymore, and don't remember exactly what it was referencing. It seems like ISU's program is still so new, people just don't really know a whole lot about it.
Either way, I'm planning to do the online bridge... If I have to wait to apply till after I finish my RN-BSN, that's still doable... but I'm really hoping they take it because I'm eager to get the whole process started, and the money for school would definitely help!
