HELP! I gotta question about LVN-RN bridge


Hi guys, I am from Southern CA San Gabriel area.

This is my first time making a thread and i thought hopefully someone can be kind enough to help answer my question. I am currently in the LVN program and will be graduating by 10/09. I plan to go get my RN right away because i definitely dont want to become lazy to go back to school. I plan to work as an LVN and go to RN skewl at the same time. With that being said, I have done some of my GE classes such as English, Math, Sociology, anatomy ,physiology & nutrition ..but not all GE's required. The thing is i have taken those back in 2003-05..and i heard that schools accept it if its less then 5 years old..i still havent decided yet if i am going to be willing to pay 60k to get into a private school or try and try to find a CC that will take me... so these are my questions :

1. Do you know of any good programs or community colleges that wont have a wait list? if so which ones would you suggest?

2. Do all schools only accept GE classes up to 5 years old? if not which ones accept classes that are older ?

3. What do u suggest i do in the mean time that i am still working on my LVN certificate? i just dont want to waste any time and feel like maybe i should take up classes online.. do you know what prereq classes i can take up online at the moment for the RN program?

i really hope someone can help me .. i would really appreciate any in site. I love this site btw, it has so much info.

thanks guys! :nurse:
