Texas LVN-RN Online

Nursing Students Online Learning

Updated:   Published

Does anyone know of any good alternatives to Excelsior for an online LVN-RN transition program.

BTW, I would really like it if this wasn't a debate about excelsior or a thread where people tried to convince me to go to Excelsior. I'm just trying to see if there are any good alternatives that I've missed.

Jimbalaya, track down a user named txspadequeen921 and ask her -- I think she knows about one that's not Excelsior. She's in Texas.


Ha ha, I'm kidding. :)

HAHAHA Lunah! I could hear the last part in darth vaders voice!!

Lamar University in Beaumont, TX has a LVN to ADN program(don't know if it's offered online too). Lamar State College-Orange does as well but they have an online class that can be applied for in March. The only problem is they only accept a certain number of students. I am not sure about Lamar State College-Port Arthur having an online option. I attended LSC-O for my LVN and absolutely LOVE it but due to another child I am having a problem completing pre-reqs to apply hence my interest in Excelsior.:nurse:

Challenge tests are taken thought NLN per test is $75 if u wana take your nsg. program through ASU. Right now the hospital where I am working Methodist partnered with lamar state college port arthur as well. we wll be starting the program by september 19. 15 months periods $5100 plus for the whole program. Were so excited about it. Good luck to all the lvn's of methodist who will be in this journey.If you co lvn's are intestested in thesame program check out their website. There was already one lvn who finished the program graduated last May 21 and she has good input about the program. Her academic coaches were nice to her. Clinicals will be done locally. Your employer should partner with lamar state college so u can do your clinicals in your own place of employment. Good luck to all...

There is a completely online program through Lamar State - Port Arthur


They allow you to do your clinicals at an approved site locally for you. I am looking into it now. I have a co-worker that is about to being the program in Sept.

Hope this helps!
