    Most of your LPN-ASN programs are 1 year to 18 month programs full time. I'm not sure about LPN-BSN programs, but it may depend on how many general ed courses you have under your belt when you start. I would say around 3 years. ISU has an online LPN-BSN program. There are several students in that program here. Maybe one of them can tell you how long their program is.

    Having a BSN offers more job opportunities in the long run. If you take a look at the job openings for nurses in your area, it may give you an idea whether it will help you to get a BSN, or if you'll be fine with the ASN. If you're planning on working at the bedside for a while as a staff RN, you most likely will not make more money with a BSN vs. ASN.

    My LPN to ADN program was a mini mester and 2 regular semesters so about 9 months total. I applied to a LPN to BSN program also and that would have taken me about 2 years. Still not bad but I wanted my RN faster. I'm working toward my BSN now because I want to eventually get my Masters. I don't want to do anything management wise and probably wouldn't bother with my BSN if I didn't want to teach but thats just my personal opinion. Good luck.

    I'v been told that if your an LPN you save time and money by going strait for RN B verses going for Assosiate first then going for Bach. ... Any opinions??
