    It depends on where you'll be accepted. The person that I talked to, she's working as an LVN since 2012, then she'll start the LVN to RN bridging program this fall. She said it's just for 1 year. But prior to that she still took up some prerequisite subjects. So that's the idea.

    More studying, and it's a pain. But she said the tuition is around 7k (in Junior College) which is more doable than the 14k-28k that other private schools offer for the MS&OB.

    Although it's still not a BSN at the end but atleast there's a chance we can be RNs here.

    I've been looking for a similar topic like this!!!!!! I got rejected by CA Board of Nursing so I'm planning to just take the ADN program even if I already have BSN in the Philippines. I think it's harder to find a school which will accommodate me if I'm only after completing units. I just got recently licensed in Texas as an RN but I really want to work in CA as an RN. Can you update me if you actually got into an ADN program? Thanks so much!!! You can also email me at: jamaeca_espiritu@yahoo.com. I really want to know Thank you!!

    Hi! So did your friend finish the LVN to RN? Im curious if some of her nursing classes got credited or did she have to take all the nursing classes. How long did she do it? Is she an RN now?

    Thank you in advance!
