hello to all here on allnurse.com!i am a new member to this site, so please, bear with me. i could use all the advice that i possibly can.i graduated from unitek college at the sacramento campus earlier this year, took my boards and is awaiting my results. i havent really looked into jobs yet, because i want to make sure that i have my licensed before i go out and find a job. [to all: i have tried the pearsonvue trick --> and it did say "status delivery successful." just waiting for my snail mail letter.]okay --> my dilemma...prior to going to unitek to get my LVN license, i was in the nursing program at solano college here in solano county. i failed out the two time that was alloted to me, and now...im trying to find an LVN to RN bridge program. i have already finished my prerequisite classes for the nursing program...FOUR YEARS AGO, and im scared that it will expire soon. but trying to go into an LVN to RN bridge, does it matter, or does it depend on the school? my sciences [micro, physio and anatomy] arent the greatest, and my overall gpa for the three classes are a 2.3. ive looked into MANY of the schools out here in northern california, and most of the community colleges are requiring that LVNs trying to get into a bridge program to have at LEAST a 2.5 to 3.0 gpa in their sciences. so, i am stuck in a rut because i tried to retake a physio class at solano to boost up my gpa, but they were saying that regardless if i take the class over again, my first physio grade will take precedence over my new grade. im soo overwhelmed....and CONFUSED as to what to do. i want so bad to get into an LVN to RN program, but it just seems that the demands are equally high as trying to get into an RN program. i need help. im trying to do it the cheapest way possible. im trying to avoid the vocational schools like western and unitek again --> to get the same ADN experience and the high costly prices!please -- if anyone has any advice for me as to what i can/should do, please dont hesitate to respond! it would be GREATLY appreciated! thank you!
