I'm doubling up at OU now! Should be done by December, which will leave me with a BSN in less than 7 months
Nice article with good ideas.
I have systemic SLE, and had been sidelined for 10 years on medical disability retirement. Not only had I thought I would never work again, but I didn't think I was long for this world either.
Nearly 4 years ago I started full time work again - from home, doing telephone triage nursing. I love it. It's exactly what I needed and wanted, as I knew I could never again survive doing 12 hr shifts doing direct patient care at the bedside, or the long hours spent on one's feet running, running, running ...
You've got some really creative and excellent ideas. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge and expertise - that's very, very cool. More nurse's are afflicted with some condition that makes working in the traditional sense harder and harder. And those bills won't pay themselves! Many thanks!
I dont know I'm not there yet. Sorry I will let you know but www.fvtc.edu is their website and its a great tool. You can go to the nursing website page. They have lots a frequently asked questions. You have to pass the nursing classes with a C.
From the way they make it sound you aren't in the ready group for very long. But as soon as I know I will let you know!
In my area there is huge competition for the seats like the RN program. There were over 400 applicants for 40 seats in my LPN class. Also some of the community colleges have residency requirements so make sure you find out about that before relocating. Wishing you the best. Jules
I am sure you will have your pick if your willing to move. In Central NY I don't know of any wait lists. We have Boces centers that have 11 month LPN programs. There is a simple entrance test and then you have an interview. The costs vary but its around 7,000 dollars give or take a few hundred dollars. Of course NY is VERY COLD!!!!! and lots of snow. I am sure there will be lots of places with no wait list. There are some colleges to that have LPN to RN program here. Such as Suny Delhi, it is a 2 semester program for your LPN and you can bridge to the RN. More expensive than the Boces programs though. Best wishes
