    I was a medic, not an LPN, but I graduated from Excelsior College and then continued with their RN-to-BSN program, so there's my endorsement.

    Hi, I am 42 and just graduated the LPn program here in Ma. I want to jump into the LPN to Rn through Collegenetwork.com. I'm not sure that it is for real. It seems to good to be true. I would have to hold an 80 average though. That is kinda high. Has anyone here done the LPN to RN? I have not even taken the boards yet. Thanks Cissy

    college network is only a publishing company. they do not award the degree. as far as i know Excelsior (which i'm doing) and Indiana State U. are the two distance learning programs for RN...Excelsior is an associates and i believe ISU is a bach.

    there are quite a few who have recently passed the Excelsior program and clinical weekend and are graduate nurses, waiting to take their NCLEX-RN who did the LPN to RN program (EXcesior offers it for Medics, LPNS, respiratory - to RN program) on this board. browse through the posts and you will see LOTS of info!

    There is a thread re: the Indiana State University RN-BSN program
    https://allnurses.com/forums/f125/in...ts-248029.html It is very imformative re: the process. A lot of them are not going through The College Network for their books in Phase I and II but purchasing them on ebay etc...to save the money. Phase's III and IV are through ISU. The College Network is only a publishing company of the books, but you do have to pass the studies of the books they publish to go into the program. Anyhow, check out this thread for a wealth of info! Good luck! I would head that direction myself, howevery Texas does not recognize ISU program yet. There is a list in this thread of states that do.

    Texas does not recognize the ISU online RN-BSN yet. They do recognize Excelsior. I know this was posted awhile ago. Not sure if you had this info yet or not.
