I have just joined this site and am reading the threads about ISUs LPN to BSN program. Its a bit frightening because I am a student in VA interested in this program for next year. I'm seeing a lot of threads from/about CA residents. Is there anyone who has attended this program on the East coast or is currently enrolled in the program that can shed some light on what exactly is going on? According to TCN I'm set. I would hate to waste time and money on a program that is fraudulent.

This is my feeling... go into this program with your eyes wide open. Follow the program. Check with your state BON to make sure you are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN upon graduation. I know there is a link somewhere on the ISU site that lists all clinical sites with current contracts. I am in NC and have 3 sites close enough to me, so this should help speed up the process of locating clinical sites - and I have one other facility which I am considering approaching the DON to see if a contract is possible.

I am not using TCN, but I don't really have a problem with them either. How far along in the process are you?

Hello!

I am also currently in Va (in NoVa area) and working on phase 2. I have completed 2 of the 4 nursing challenge exams and I also still need to take my Teas. I use TCN, and so far, I really like TCN. It is a bit pricey, but the study guides for me were very helpful. Some people don't use TCN and do just fine without TCN's study guides. It is too each is too own. My goal is to make the June 1 deadline date for phase 3. If you want to network feel free to add/message me. I don't use this forum often however, I can be reached by email at vixendoll9@aol.com

I am interested in this option LPN-BSN. Does one apply directly to the nursing program and follow their admission requirements or do one have to first apply to the University and do those admission requirements? Does one have to do a placement test for Math and English like at the CC? What is their Information Literacy like? How long is the LPN-BSN can it be completed in 18 months?

Hi lpntorn2be

I am also in South eastern Virginia. If you don't mind telling, what hospital are you doing your clinicals in and was it easy to set up. I saw that Sentara Leigh is listed and I live within 5 minutes from there so that would be so perfect for me. I am very interested in this program because I relocated to the area from NY where I was doing Excelsior. I want to do a program that is approved by the Virginia BON. I hope you can give me some insight.

Thanks

Greg
