More and more states are following GA, CA, etc. example with Excelsior or its grads.

Stay warm and safe

It is an LPN to RN bridge program, 15 months in length, and ALL of the pre-reqs are included in the curriculum. I toured the school. All of your classes are in one building. Financial aid is available. It is rather pricey-round $22,000 for the entire course. There is a similar program in the Tampa, FL area as well.
I worked with a guy in VA in Dec. 09 who was laid off from Ford after 11 years. He entered a program in Norfolk, VA-NO nursing background and will finish with his ADN in 15 months, his wife is in the same program he is in.

I'm thinking about starting there next fall (2011). I'd like any info you can give me. Was it doable with working and family? Were the transition courses difficult?
