    Rethinking my options... sigh.. Vent

    I drive a hour and 20 minutes away for this very reason! I don't like how competitive CC are so I drive to a private strictly nursing school!

    need advice: lpn or rn

    Yes I had to get a government loan but they always make you pay a large portion while in school. I'm married and have children so only paid about $200 a month but my single friend was close to $400. I think evenings were a better atmosphere then days. Yes I graduated already. You don't even have to study to pass. The last two terms they gave everyone a B. Whether you did well or not. Everything that I needed to know to pass the boards I learned on my own.

    need advice: lpn or rn

    I went to ICCI. Worst.school.ever. I was warned by a friend not to go but did it anyway. It was awful. The school is awful, your classmates are awful, the price is awful. Luckily I went with a friend so she could keep me from committing suicide on a daily basis and me with her. But I could not get in to a tradition RN program. I could never do well enough on the entrance exam so this was my only option.

    Quest RE: GPA, tranacripts and such

    Ok, I totally understand now that it not morally right. Could I not submit them and If I get it retake them with that college?

    Question?!

    Ok so here my scenario: I will be graduating from a LPN program in 4 months. I also have been working as a LNA for the past six years. At that point I'm planning on applying to a LPN to BSN program. My GPA Is great, all A's and high B's. I have taken many other classes from another college. I've gotten a few good grades but mostly C's. so my GPA at that college is poor. But still the classes are transferable. My dilemma is that the college I'm applying to would like a 3.5 GPA. When choosing people into the program they do it like in a tier system. Anyone with around a 3.5 moves on to the next tier, then anyone with the classes move on to the next tier, and then they look at your résumé from there. Should I apply with just my current schools transcripts showing a high GPA and if I get into the program send in my other transcripts after? So upon deciding if I get in, they will see high GPA but no additional classes. OR should I send in all transcripts. Which will show low GPA at the other classes. Is this making sense??!!

    Salem State University LPN to BSN Program

    Just wanted to say that I met with admissions! Basically you need to apply, send transcripts, resume, and copy if LPN license by Nov 1 for spring 2013 or Feb 1 for Fall 2013. I graduate the end of September so I have one month to graduate, have my school send my transcripts to the boards so I can take my NCLEX, pass the NECLEX, and get everything over..... Eeeks! Pressure is on!!

    Salem State University LPN to BSN Program

    I don't have an input but am looking into the program myself! I graduate from a LPN program in September and am hoping to get everything in for the November deadline!

    I've been a CNA...

    Where I live it's extremely hard to get into a RN program. And LPN's make about the same as RN's but can not work in a hospital. Or I guess they "could", but none of the hospitals would hire them. After applying for the past year and getting declined from the RN program. I have started a LPN program! I'm half way done. I plan on continuing with my RN while I work as a LPN making a lot more money as my current CNA job! I think you are making a good choice!
  13. There are schools here were you can have a bachelors in basically anything and get your Masters in Nursing. This program only takes two years.
  14. Has anyone been through this program in Maine?
