    Jen159...I don't know how to contact you, and also have a million questions for you. My orientation for Rio's online LPN to RN program is 10/29/10. I think I call Rio once a week with a new question. I just thought it would be great to have an actual contact that has done the program. Can you tell me how to email/contact you?

    Can someone give me information on how the clinicals go through Rio. I will be beginning clinicals in Summer 2011 starting with NUR 21404. Any information on this class and the following classes for the online LPN-RN bridge program would be greatly appreciated.

    I am currently in 13606 .. so far so good, it is moving pretty fast. I have already taken one test and I feel pretty good about it.
    How were you able to get out of taking 13606?

    To 297you: I have already taken 13606 and 14606. For me 14606 seemed to be a little tougher than 13606. I had some personal issues and I had to withdrawal from the program. I had to file an exemption of policy to get back in to the program. I will be starting back with the summer semester. What part of Ohio do you live in. I am really excited to get back into it and finish this degree

    tainted1972- Just wondering how your liking 13606? I can't wait to start clinicals in May. Hope classes are going good for you.

    The class is moving by fairly quickly, I am almost done with the discussion board posts, so I will be able to focus on the last 3 exams. I feel pretty good about things, just anxious to be done already! LOL

    I live in Perry County Ohio, but work in Columbus. I will probably going to Chillicothe for clinicals (I hope). I didn't have to take 13606 because of pathophysiology and extra biology classes I had to take at Hocking College. I'm getting nervous as 14606 approaches in 4 weeks!!! Where are you two from???

    I live in Lawrence County. It's at the very bottom of Ohio. I found 14606 a bit more challenging for me than 13606. But my professor was awesome and that helped the nervousness for Good luck in 14606

    Please help. I am currently in the nursing program 13606 and it is becoming more difficult to me. I thought that there would be study guides but there is nothing. They give you about a hundred or so pages to read and 50 questions to test.
    I wish there was someone who could help me with this. I am barely passing. Please if you can give me any tips or study material I would really be thankful.

    I was looking into Rio Grande as a second option if i don't get into OU: southern. But the website is impossible to navigate, and when I click on the ADN program info, it brings up the accelerated LPN/ADN program...which is NOT what I want....

    I am looking at the ADN program, im not an LPN, so where do i go to look for more info? Should i call them to find out more?

    I seen someone say they require a 90% on the hesi? I got a 93.4% but i didn't have to take Chemistry or Biology so i don't know if thats a requirement for them?

    I have all of the pre req's except for A&PII and Micro. so how would the course load be?

    I have like a ton! of questions, so any help is appreciated!

    Rio Grande is very good at answering questions if you call them. I am an LPN attending the LPN to RN program.
