    Time to Make a Change for LPNS.

    I'm in Oregon and I must sat it is Crazy!!! There are no bridge programs here. IU'm in the process of starting an ASN progran. I will have to redo all the classes over again because the accrediting body is not the same. It is SO frusterating to be stuck in a hole with no assistance. We do have a nursing shortage but Oregon is not doing much to fix the LPN to RN gap. The OSBN does not respond to my emails about future plans either. The community college's are so darn competitive that it is not worth the stress for me to even think about them.

    ITT Tech Portland OR, Any ideas

    I went to the information session yesterday on the ASN program. It was interesting and sounds do-able with my schedule. My problem is ......I am already an LPN, have been for 4 years. The program is 27 months regardless of previous degrees and no way to accelerate. The cost is a bit spendy but workth the convience in my book. My work is pushing me to get my RN so I can be an RCM. Anyone currently in the program or can give me any advise on ITT Tech? I am one of those that DO NOT like the RAT RACE of a community college. Not that they are bad, they are just not for me!!!!

    What Do You Do??

    i work as a cma (certified medical assistant) in an urgent care on the weekends. it pays pretty good ($18.00/hr) while i'm in my lpn program. it is only a 13 month program, so it won't be that long to give up my weekends.:roll lpn student in oregon:pumpiron:

    strictly business/non-caring LPN

    lmao yes, i agree with the last posting..........food stamps do not pay for the $200 cell phone that we often see. mean while during the middle of winter the little infants are being toted in clinic with nothing on but a diaper and a t-shirt, but mom has fancy shoes and a bit ol' puffy jacket.......

    Nurse, hospital sued in baby's death

    omg, as a student, this makes me a little nervous. i feel really bad for all folks involved here. i don't even want to make an assumption of who is in the wrong (or if anybody at all was in the "wrong"), because i wasn't there, but someone should be held responsible for this little precious life that was lost. i'm new to this site and i love it. i really appreciate reading the advise and words of the experienced folks here on this site. you guys rock!!!! :monkeydance:(this site makes me want to dance,like this......lol) lpn student in oregon

    Nurse Calender Girls

    i agree they are trying to do something good. i have 2 boys ages 7 & 8, i would not even know what to do with myself if they were not with me. i do know that it would make me feel good to have people around me that care that much about my children to let their legacy live on. if you read the article and what it says. thumbs up to those ladies. p.s. i hope i can pose for art at the age of 52. lpn student in oregon
