If you are considering Nursing and you want to ultimately be an RN never go LPN to RN route. There is no smooth or simple transition programs, you will end up stuck as an LPN or you will have to go through a lot of unnecessary bs. It's a complete waste of time and money to do this. Just get your associate RN or BS RN. Now if your ultimate goal is to be an LPN and you have no desire to transition to an RN then the LPN program here is great.
