I hope you don't mind me sending you a private message. If you're looking for an alternative LPN/LVN to RN program it's a great one, in my opinion. As long as you're able to travel to Kansas for clinicals, it's completely doable. In my class we had people from 7 different states and 2 from Canada. It's just highly competitive, due to the limited amount of students accepted each year.
Acceptance into the program is solely based on a points system. Points are based on your grade in each prerequisite class and section on the Kaplan entrance exam. I had mostly A's and a couple of B's and got in.
Good luck. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
