Hello, could you please email me a list of accredited online Lpn to RN programs, or could you please email me a website that will help me find a bridge program. Thank you. There are many bad things being said about College Network.

The college network is not a program it's a publishing company that sells expensive customized study guides. They cannot guarantee admission to any school nor are they qualified to provide accurate academic advising. In the same category as TCN are Rue, DLSI, achieve test prep and others. None are endorsed or affiliated with Excelsior. ISU does have a relationship with TCN but it's questionable right now with a current lawsuit naming both TCN and ISU. TCN is under current investigation by the FTC.

The two main online hybrid LPN to RN programs (none are fully online as in person clinical is required) are Indiana State University (LPN to BSN) and excelsior college (LPN to ASN). Neither program is accepted by every state BoN. CABRN does not accept either program. You must be a strong independent learner to be successful

Many county colleges are offering hybrid programs. My local CC offers online theory and clinical once a week for lab or facility clinical.

You are located in NY according to the tags on your post. Excelsior College offers an established, accredited, respected distance-based LPN-to-ASN program that will render you eligible for RN licensure after passing NCLEX.

agree with above poster, and Excelsior is accredited by NY BON, so that being said, if the school is accredited in the state it is located in, it would be accepted for NCLEX but it does depend on your state, always check first with the BON in the state you wish to be licensed in. :nurse:
