    Hello to everyone. I am 33 years old. I have been an LPN for 5 years. I am currently enrolled in an LPN to BSN program. I attend classes 1 night a week. I am in the 3rd semester. It will take 3 years. I have gone a whole year...only 2 left. I am sure there are faster programs out there, but the 1 night a week thing works out really well for me because I have to work and have 3 children I am home schooling. So, I am currrently in Psychology-Life Span and Human Development and Philosophy. We do 2 classes each semester. Next semester starts A&P, I believe....Best wishes to everyone!:smiley_aa

    I completed an LVN program in October 2005 and my NCLEX examination is scheduled for late December. If all goes well, I definitely plan to complete an LVN-to-RN bridge program that is not as costly as the LVN course.

    Hi, I am 43 yrs old. I have 3 children, ages 20 to 11 yrs old. I have been an LPN for 18 yrs and have tried unsuccessfully to leave nursing. Well I finally decided to go for my RN. I start classes for pre-nursing requirements in Jan. '06.

    I am an lpn interested in going back to school to get my BS. I was wondering is it really possible to do all that online? What online nursing course is good and widely recognized if any? Need some help getting started!

    I guess you can do it online for all the courses. But the clinical is what will be hard to do. The College Network is a good place to go if you want to do online. Most of it is challenge tests and studying workbooks.
    I am getting my associated nursing degree at the local community college.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm 30 years old and I've been an LPN for 2 1/2 years now, (my how time has flown by.) I'm currently enrolled in Excelsior College although I've only completed one exam so far in one year, I just keep putting it off. I need a swift kick in the rear. LOL
    Anywho, I'm married with an 11 year old son and currently work in sub acute rehab as a full time night nurse. My goal is to get my RN so I can work in the ER. I've been in the ER as a tech for 5 years and I absolutely love it.

    I've been an LPN for 32 years and am now attending the very same college that took me thru my LPN training. Amazing huh? I'm taking all my prerequisites this year and summer hoping to be accepted into their actual bridge program in the fall. Then I would be doing the clinicals and nursing classes and graduate in May. Its hard work but I really am focused now on this. Its about time I got paid for all the work I already do LOL!!

    So how do you like the 12hr shifts and what days do you do? I just left my 12hr job and have been out of work for 6 weeks!!! This apparently is a bad time to find a new job. But I've now been offered a new job at a Sub Acute Rehab facility fulltime. They know I'm in school, and say they will mix my shifts to fit..7-3 and 3-11pm. Im so used to working the 12hr shifts I hope this all works out. If not, well then I'll be looking for another facility that does them. What would really work best is a weekend program....but we'll see!! Good luck to you too!

    I'm Julie, 42 year old wife to dh, Mom of 6, step mom to 3, and Grandma to (almost~ in March) 5.
    I work as a LPN on a dementia unit, 12 hour shifts, and attend school Monday thru Friday for my BSN.
    The hardest classes for me right now, is, Statistics. This is my 2nd round taking it, and I am praying to pass!
    Best of everything to all of us!
