    :dhi My Name Is Laurie And I Have Been An Lpn For Three Years. Has Anyone Tried The College Network For Thier Rn? I Am Moving To Pa. Soon And Would Really Like To Become And Rn, However The Closest Lpn To Rn School Is Ninety Miles Away!
    You will not be getting your RN degree from The College Network. They are a publishing company that sell study modules for the test outs. Most likely you would be a student of Excelsior College or Indiana State university ( someone corrrect me if there are others) they are both distant learning programs to obtain your RN. I would check with your BON as both are not accepted in all states.

    I have been an LPN for 5 years, went to LVN school in Texas. I am living in NM now, am taking prereqs for the RN program, 2 questions...I have considered going the last year of the RN program, if accepted, would start Jan. '09, or EC. I have read alot of success stories on a yahoo group for RN EC students. How does one support oneself if I was to go thru traditional nursing school program? I have thought of paying my house payment a year in advance, but can only seem to get so far on that. I am leaning towards Excelsior program, but now I've been reading about Indiana State U. Is that program legitimate or is it thru TCN or the other pay before EC programs/scams? thanks for your help.

    Hey everyone! I have been an LPN for 9 yrs. Working in LTC. I have worked my way up the ladder, and I am currently working as a Nurse Manager. I just had a baby and have decided to jump in to the local RN bridge program to get paid for my management work. I love managing, although I do miss pt care. I should probably try out a hospital at some point... Any thoughts from anyone going from LTC to Hospital? How is the pay different? I am in ohio, I know it varies from state to state. I would love to hear some thoughts!

    Hello All! My name is Kristin. I am a twenty three year old female who recently graduated as an LPN in May. I didn't take my NCLEX exam as I figure that it will be even more motivation for me to graduate as an RN. I start classes in August. At the moment I am a stay at home Mommy to my three year old daughter and I paint custom shirts to bring in a little extra spending money. Good luck to all of you!
