LPN to ASN programs in East TN?

  1. Looking for information on schools offering LPN to ASN track in eastern TN. We will be moving soon, Johnson City/Maryville are two of the areas we are considering.

    How difficult is it to get accepted into a program, and are there programs to avoid? Which ones do you recommend?

    Thanks everyone!

    ETSU has a LPN to BSN program that is 18 months long. I graduated with many people that completed this program.
    Here is a link to more info about the program:

    ETSU is a very good school; and isn't as expensive as some of the other state schools.
    Hope this helps.

    Yes, I have considered it, but I honestly don't feel I could stay focused in that kind of program. I love online classes, but I have to have some structure to it.

    In any case, I was accepted to and LPN to RN program here in Indiana, so we are going to put off moving until after I am through.
