LVN to RN bridge in CA?


I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, I'm still new to this forum. Anyways, I'm trying to get my RN done. My situation is that I have been working as an LVN for about 1 1/2 years and did my LVN program at a private LVN school. So therefore, I don't have any pre-reqs done at a community college or other college. Is there anyway I can get into a program without having pre-reqs? Right now, I'm back in community college trying to get pre-reqs done but it's such a hassle. If there's no way, does anyone know where I can take Anatomy & Physiology online? Or maybe LVN to RN program in other states? My problem is that in order to take A and P, I have to take Bio, Chem, etc. Any help would be appreciated....Thanks!

You said you might be interested in an LVN-to-RN program in another state, right?

Platt College is a private trade school that offers an LPN-to-RN program with no prereqs. The full time program is 14 months, and the part time is 22 months. They have 2 campuses in Oklahoma (Tulsa and Oklahoma City). The only requirements are an Oklahoma state LPN license and official transcripts from your LVN program.
