  Hey!!

          Random question for all my Rasmussen peeps doing the ADN program right now. I completed my LPN at Rasmussen in MN and after graduation worked as a nurse for three years. In that time I have recently moved to Houston and am at awe that they don't have any schools like a Rasmussen considering it's a massive city. I am either forced to take a ton more pre reqs, sit a nursing entrance exam and wait to get into the program, OR pay $80,000.00 to go to the one private college to complete an LPN to BSN program. So I am wondering how crazy it would be if I could sign back up to Rasmussen in Florida, complete most work online and fly in once a week and do clinicals?? So I guess my question is, are there any current LPN-ADN's completing the program in any Florida location. How many days per week do you think you are at school. How many days are you in clinical. I know it sounds crazy BUT I am in my late 30's and looking to just get this done so I can move ahead in my life! Thanks for all of your wonderful help!

flying in for clinicals? nope! you have clinicals, you have labs, you have SIMs. As an LPN you would be reentering in with alot of new classes left ahead of you and there is no way you could possibly do what you are thinking. Some quarters you would have clinicals or labs or SIM so you would be there a minimum of 3 days on campus and you wouldnt be able to choose to do that all on m-w or w-f. You would just have to be where you needed to be when you needed to be there. Im not sure what youve heard of the LPN-RN bridge but its at least 1 full year of taking multiple courses at a time. Each course would have clinicals, labs, SIMs aside from lecture. Also, lecture component isnt online. Very rarely is it online.

So I guess to sum it up...no you wouldnt be able to do what you are thinking. You would have to move to Florida for the year it would take you to finish.
