I currently hold a B.S. in another discipline, however I plan to enter into the nursing field via the LPN path. After completing an LPN program, I plan to do a LPN-RN bridge program, then an RN-BSN bridge program, etc. My ultimate plan is to become a nurse practitioner or DNP.
I have read various articles about how certain regionally accredited programs do not often accept credits from nationally accredited programs. However certain nationally accredited LPN programs like Eastwick College, seem like the most reasonable way to go for me.
Does anyone know if I would be able to get my RN and then later my BSN at other institutions having completed a LPN and RN program at these schools?
If so, what colleges and universities would accept credits from nationally accredited schools?
I do not just want to cut myself short and not be able to further my education, due to accreditation rules.
Thanks in advance : )
