So how does this work...


Specializes in Neuro ICU.

Ok Im having a brain fart..

I am starting a 13 month LPN program at Maricopa skill centers in Aug.

Then, the following Jan. my plan is to go straight on in to block 3 and get my ADN.

After that, I want to go directly into prereqs for a bachelors & do that.

So my question is, what schools in the Phx area offer RN-BSN programs? The two Ive heard of are ASU & UofP.. I know its really hard to get into ASU, but are the standards still really high even if you already have your Rn?

Ive also heard of how expensive U of Phx is and Id prefer not to go there for that reason, so are there any options besides these two?

Also, as far as ASU goes, is there a wait list to get into the Rn-Bsn program?

Thanks for any input!!


Hi Laura!

I met with the ASU Advisor in January regarding the RN program and I asked her about the RN to BSN program. She said it is defintely not as competitive and there is not a wait list. She couldn't say much more because she is only advises for the RN program but there is an RN to BSN Advisor. She suggested that I meet with them. Anyway, hope this helps!

Well, last I heard the UofP required 1 years experience prior to admittance to their RN-BSN program.

ASU is probably your best bet.

Grand Canyon University also has RN to BSN. Most large hospitals in Phoenix even have classes at the hospital through GCU. Your work will also pay for the tuition!

Oh, I forgot about GCU...:idea:

You could also do NAU, but it's 2 years, and you could transfer more credits to ASU than NAU.
