LPN to RN

Posted

So I've been an LPN for a few years now. And due to some life changes I'm back at living with my folks. Since I have some time I wanted to flip my LPN to an RN. I'm not sure if I should of made this thread here or in the RN sub forum. I was thinking of one of them online programs. I work Fri, Sat, and Sun and would rather keep them days while in school. What are some programs I should I look into?

I am in my last month of my PN program and we were told to avoid all online LPN-RN programs. A lot of them are not accredited in most states. I also was told that a lot of employers won't take it.

Could you go to a local college and just take the courses online?

I could but starting from scratch would take forever. I hear mixed things about it.

TheCommuter, BSN, RN

Specializes in Case mgmt., rehab, (CRRN), LTC & psych. Has 15 years experience.

Online LPN-to-RN transition programs are not accepted for licensure by all state boards of nursing.

I attended a classroom-based LPN-to-RN transition program that held clinical shifts every Wednesday, and classes (theory) every Tuesday and Thursday. This schedule enabled me to work full-time every weekend.

I'm planning on doing mine next year at Georgia Northwestern Tech College, at the walker county campus. Its a like....45 minutes- 1 hour drive from my house....but sacrifices have to be made in order to ascend. After a year at the nursing home I just recently got hired at I'm sure they will work with my schedule since its for an RN license.
