Do anyone know of any LPN to RN Fast track programs? I'm graduationing with my LPN IV Certification in June. While I'm still in the study mode. I was hoping to get right in to a RN program. I'm hoping its not another year and a half to finish. I finish the LPN program in nine months. I have all the A&P done for the RN program. Please can anyone help me to find a good school that doesn't have a waiting list and not to expensive?
Thanks a million

Good luck finding a place.
I'll tell you what I know about the Dayton area . . . .Rets has a program, but I'm not sure how long it takes if you have the prereqs. (It also has a questionable reputation if you take a look at posts on this site.) Kettering will still take 2 years, although you may be able to get away with part-time hours if you have enough transfer credit. Sinclair will probably take 2 solid years, maybe plus some. Clark State (in Springfield) requires you to work as an LPN for a year before you start their program. I've heard of some people making the drive to Miami University because they are good at taking transfer credit.
Columbus has a few private schools that are pricey but can get you done faster. The fastest program I know of is COTC in Newark, Ohio. That's really far away, but the program is 9 months and has a good reputation.
I hope someone posts something more helpful for you soon.
