RJ in San Diego - Could you give me more information on what LVN to BSN program are you in? I was a Hospital Corpsman in the Navy and was able to take the LVN exam. I have been working as an LVN for the last 6 years and now want to get my RN, but I work full time and can not go to classes. And like you said, the LVN to RN programs have those long waiting lists. I would love to study at home. I would be great-full for any information you can give me. Thank you for your time.

Hello Fran in Los Angeles: I have not heard anything from RJ in San Diego - But I believe the LVN to BSN program she is taking about is from The College Network.... I have a meeting with them on Friday 11/2/2007 ... I will let you know what they have to say.... I was told on the phone that it could take 3-4 years to get your degree.

I'm also looking into Maric college, they offer a Associate of Science Degree in Nursing - But you have to go to classes with them, which might not work for you since you have children.

Hi Judy
The College Network is offering an LVN to BSN program which I am taking. It's costing me about $26,000.00. It's not cheap but much cheaper than going to a University.

It would cost you less since you have taken some classes.

You can get more information by calling Louis A. Wilcove, Program Advisor at (858) 775-2748
Please let him know that Richard Muri referred you

I have been looking for a program like this for sometime and I am VERY pleased with it.

I hope this helps.... Richard

Hi,
I have been an LVN for 5years now and have done most of my prereqs for RN. I still need micro and chem but in order to take them you have to be at least at math 45 level. I have a bit of a mental block when it comes to math. Please give me your honest opinion on the program. Is it all really online???

I have taken micro and chemistry without math, but quit because of math and english.
Just shop around for different colleges.
Some have different requirements.
You wouldn't even use the algebra, just basic math for IV calculations.
Good luck, go for it

Before you call it a rip off .... I think you should do your homework.... check out their website at www.college-net.com ... I am glad I did.... This program is much cheaper then a normal Nursing program and since there is a waiting list here in San Diego to get into a Nursing program, If I study hard I can get my BSN before I could even get into a Nursing program.

THIS LVN TO BSN PROGRAM IS WORTH IT

Check it out !!!!

Hi Sherylinn

YES.... From what I understand you could complete this program in as little as 2 years... It really depends on what credits you have... Since I never took any college classes before taking the LVN exam, it will take me longer.... If you work hard, you will have your BSN in no time.

Good luck..... Richard

Has anyone completed the College Network LVN to Rn program? I am thinking about signing up for it, but I am wondering what the clinicals are like? Do they really guarantee that they can find you a local preceptor? What is the preceptorship like? Are you pretty much on your own at the clinical site or is the preceptor really there to teach and mentor?? Any input would be welcome. Thank you.

Hello;

My understanding is that you pick your own preceptor, as long is that nurse has a BSN... I was told that you have to get signed off on the clinicals, but you are graded on a term paper(s) that you have to write about the cliinicals.

You can get more information by calling Louis A. Wilcove, Program Advisor at (858) 775-2748

Hello Lena

Well, it's really up to you.... I know there is a waiting list here to get into a nursing program.... If you have the time to go back to school, then go for it... I do not have the time and there for went with the LVN-BSN program offered by the College Network. And it's cheaper then any of the nursing programs here in San Diego, at least for me it is.

You can get more information by calling Louis A. Wilcove, Program Advisor at (858) 775-2748 He's the San Diego Advisor.

Hello, My name is Alicia and I live out in the antelope valley. 30 miles from the San Fernando Valley. I have been an LVN for 7 years! As most of us climb that sinority ladder, you kind of put your schooling on the back burner. I am really interested in the LVN to BSN program. Please send me information I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you!

Hello Alicia

I too put my schooling on the back burner. I challenged the LVN exam and there for have none of the per req.'s needed to get into an RN program. I heard about the College Network and took a look at their website (www.college-net.com) and also did some research on other LVN-RN programs. I decided to enroll in the College Network LVN-BSN program because It's the only online LVN-RN program offered in CA and it's cheaper then any of the nursing programs here in San Diego, at least for me it is.

You can get more information by calling Louis A. Wilcove, Program Advisor (He's the San Diego Advisor) at (858) 775-2748 or you can call the College Network direct at 1-800-634-1443.
Please let him know that Richard Muri referred you

This program works great for me and I am glad I enrolled. I hope this helps and good luck with your schooling....

Hello Nick:

NO I do not work for them.... The College Network (TCN) offer a referral program — when you provide 1-8 referrals = up to 8 exam fees will be refunded to you! On your 9th referral your TCN portion of the program will be paid for!

To qualify for the referral, these guidelines MUST be followed:
1. Both parties' addresses and phone numbers must be included.
2. The person referred must not cancel.
3. Any down payment by check or credit/debit card payment must clear.
4. Referrer must notify The College Network of Referees with a name, address, and phone number PRIOR TO EACH REFEREE'S ENROLLMENT.

As you can tell by the referral guidelines above, I was asking for referrals the wrong way. This referral program would help me out greatly, since I have to do ALL the pre req's. Which are not cheap. So if anyone would like to help me out, please contact me before you enroll.

So once again I DO NOT work the College Network - I am just trying to save myself some money.

Hope this Helps ... Richard

I'd be careful if I were you guys. Why not go back to a JC and get your ADN, it would be a lot cheaper and credited for sure. Usually stuff that seems to be too good to be true is, or comes at an expensive tuition fee. Get a babysitter and go back to school for a year and you'll be done. You don't need a BSN unless you're planning to do administrative stuff. Just my $0.02

I know a nurse who is going through the college network and has been in for one year, still has not yet been tested on any of the material and asked for help to be set up with a preceptor for clinical and you have to work around their schedule not your own. You can only do online course work when its convenient for you , but when it comes to all the clinicals your still working around someone else's schedule. she regrets it now that she can't work a schedule out with the perceptor.

There are other ways to pass your undergraduate courses. You can test out of them and earn college credit. It's very reasonable. A $65 test can save you thousands in tuition fees.

CLEP Tests are accepted at over 2,900 US colleges and universities. More information here:

The College network is not the College, Indiana State University
has the LPN-BSN program.The college network sells/Publishes the study guides and usually want you to do a contract with them
that can be very expensive.They also have Guides for Excelsior's
LPN-ADN Program.FYI-you do not have to purchase the study guides
you can look on EBAY or other places online for material.You can also clep the general exams.

The challenge test start with mental health, care of the adult, care of the family and the care of the childbearing family. the advisor said they are listed from easiest to hardest, mental health is the easiest and chldbearing family is the hardest. The practice tests in the study guides are very helpful.
