  1. I’m currently at a university and I work full time as a tech in the ER. My cost of living is becoming intense. I would rather take the LPN route. The program is allowing me to transfer my pre-requisite classes that I’ve already done which will shorten my length of time in school when I go for my RN bridge program. I would rather take the LPN route because while I’m finishing up some classes at the end of the day I’ll already be a nurse making a decent income that saves me from living check to check working as a tech. Plus it’s a great look on your resume for experience in the hospital and LPNs have tons of job opportunities in my state. Don’t listen to people who speak very negatively about LPNs because it’s actually a wonderful role as a way of starting your nursing career. I work with a lot of them who love what they do and bridging to RN is a breeze for them as an LPN cause they can finish their degree while have the ability to afford housing or apartments and other necessities.

  2. Whew. I did a comparison of the local schools in my area. There are alot of community programs that cover nursing schooling. So it's common to get your LPN with little to no money owed. I'm in Illinois. Springfield has an accelerated program that lasts 9 months. And the LPN to ADN bridge program at the CC is 1 year. ADN to BSN is 4. ADN Nursing program by itself is a little over 9K. I'm 2.5 hours from St Louis on the IL side.

  3. You’re amazing! So many of us think LVN way is the fastest way to BSN, like myself, only to find out going straight to BSN is more worth it in the long run!

  4. This video will help so many Nurses!! Like you mentioned every state is different. I have a friend in Ohio who's daughter went for her LPN which took 12 months, then a "Bridge RN program" immediately after getting her LPN, that took another 12/15 months, (all at the same private school) she then went for the BSN and just finished her RN BSN, it took her 3.5 years total! She is now entering into the Nurse Practitioner program this fall. She just kept going!

  5. I'm in California both ADN and BSN are almost the same in competitiveness so might as well really try for the better grades and go BSN. I heard LVNs have a hard time bridging where I live from competitiveness so with the good pay and having to get prereqs done people get stuck at LVN. It already pays really well though so it's not bad.

  6. I think if you’re straight out of high school living with your parents with hardly and or no bills, and your parents are paying for school, DEFINITELY go the BSN- it’s a no brainer!

    However, if you’re someone who’s changing careers and or someone who still needs to work to pay your bills then maybe LPN route is best as it allows you to graduate in a year & have a huge increase in salary and with that increased salary you can fund your PN-RN ETC. You’ll also feel like you have an advantage while in the bridge program because you have that background experience of LPN.

  7. I just finished my LVN..currently working and will start my RN next year. I’m married with a 2 year old. I don’t have time to take off to do 2 years straight for school no more at 29 years old. For me, my route works but idk about the time it take to be done. Getting started working is much better because it helps in school a ton.

  8. Hi, This is an excellent cost-time breakdown. My son is in the 4th year of a BSN program. With plans to get a DNP, the traditional route was the most cost-time efficient. Our decision was also driven by the competitive process and with the traditional BSN route, he only had to compete once to get in. With scholarships, the BSN route came substantially under priced. Thanks!

  9. I need this for real! Thank you. I’m an 13 year LPN that just withdrew from an LPN advance program. It’s was not working out with the instructor. I’m going back. I pray I can get in the program I really want that’s at a community online I wanted to go to anyway! So pray 🙏🏾 for me. Again, that’s. You got my subscription ☺️😉😊😌

  10. I’m in the RN program. It was difficult to just go straight into the BSN program. Things just didn’t happen the way I wanted it to. But I didn’t get put on any wait list here in GA. I was told it was actually cheaper to do 2 years of RN school & then 1 year in Bridge program to BSN. Down here

  11. I’m doing lpn-Rn-bsn. The lpn program where I stay ranges from 10,000-15,000 and you stay in it for 1yr. It’s easier for me bc I can have a steady job within my line of study. I use to be a undergrad student n no one would hire me for real bc I was a student. 😅 I’m a PCT II and in an lpn program 😇
