Instead of transitioning from LVN to BSN, I bridged from LVN to ASN to BSN. In the area where I live, the LVN-to-BSN programs had too many complex requirements.

Like TheCommuter, I also did LPN to ASN to BSN. I went the online route with Excelsior College for the ASN and BSN. I looked into only one LPN to BSN program (which was online), and as with TheCommuter, I also found some of the requirements a bit too complex. Although I was determined to become an RN, my level of motivation was not where it needed to have been in order to tackle some of those LPN-to-BSN requirements.
