I attended an associates level RN program from 02-03 but was dismissed due to acedemic reasons. I failed 2 classes and their policy states that you're out if you fail 2 classes. A few years later I successfully completed an LPN program and have been working as a nurse for 4 years now. I would like to continue my education and become an RN. I tried the online route, however, I'm not diciplined enough for that. I've been signed up for 2 years now and have yet to take my first test. So now I've decided to apply to a traditional school (to do the LPN to RN fast track), but every school in my area is asking for a letter of "good standing" from all previous RN programs attended. I contacted my old RN school rep who stated that she could NOT give me one because I'm NOT in good standing...because, of course, I failed the 2 classes. My question to you guys is...is there a way to get around this or what should I do next? Does this mean I can never become an RN? Please help.
