Hello

Im in IL, just outside of Chicago, if you google your state board of Nursing they probably have a list of programs and there you can probably find programs in your area. Also if you can be willing to commute if necessary. I am driving 35 miles to school

Thanks to everyone for all of the replies,advice and suggestions! I feel more confident now with my decision. It just seems more convenient and reasonable for me to do things this way. The school is close to home and they will accept my old prereqs. I am just giving myself pumped up and motivated to start school again. I have decided to still work as an LPN but cut down  my hours as needed.

@Peditra Which state are you in? and which college? I'm an LVN and have been working as an LVN for 7-8 years. I have completed my pre-requirements for RN bridge program. I need help if anyone can suggest me names of schools that are accredited in California and easy and fast to get in the program. Mt GPA is 3.6 and I'm giving teas exam in few weeks. Please help..Thank you!

Hi, I'm in PA so I don't know much about schools in CA. I know Excelsior and Indiana State University have bridge programs online, but they might not be accepted in CA. Your GPA is really good, so you should have no problem getting in anywhere you apply! I don't think the school I went to was easy, but it made it easier being a LPN with experience. What also made it easier for me was practice questions...I never did them in LPN school, and it made such a difference in the RN program. I would find questions specifically related to the topic that was for discussion instead of random questions from a NCLEX book, and it helped me learn the material by knowing what types of things to focus on. Some of the questions you will know the answer to just because you are working as a LPN. Good luck:)

Good luck to everyone, whatever it's for the bridge program or just the traditional program...the important thing is to go back:) Everyone is different and will have different points of views, but the way I see it is- it's your life,  so do what you want, even if others don't agree with you. They are not going to go back to school for you...so keep going and don't let the naysayers hold you back...
