Michael Lopez Fast-Tracks from LPN to RN
Michael Lopez, Allentown, PA RN
Fast Track to his RN an Understatement
Michael’s mom was a CNA so he knew from a very young age that he wanted to be involved in healthcare. He became an LPN and worked in that role for 18 years before deciding he wanted to change his life. “I was really motivated to complete the program as quickly as I could, I was able to knock out all the course work in less than one year.
What he liked about Achieve
"I loved that I could go at my own pace. The material Achieve provides was so good it allowed me to plan ahead and go at an accelerated pace. They actually allowed me to take more than one [test prep] course at a time after I proved I could do it. I completed my program in under a year and I passed each of my exams on the first try – no issues."
"The instructors were fantastic and very professional, always willing to help you and provide extra help along the way. I always felt supported and the teachers had a very personal approach. They wanted to make sure you succeeded. I took one course in person and the rest were online.“
Achieve’s CPNE Class Prepared Him Well
"The CPNE is tough, but taking the Achieve workshop really helped. They really taught me what I needed to know- the information was spot on and the teachers were really supportive. I had heard nightmares about folks struggling when on their own – but I passed on my first attempt, no troubles."
With RN in Hand – Management Came Calling
“ I was working toward my Masters in healthcare Administration – but as an LPN I needed to earn my ASN and become an RN so I could manage other LPNs and RNs,” Michael said. With his RN and a Master’s in Healthcare Administration, Michael earned a hefty pay raise and a new role overseeing RNs for Case Management for a large national Health Care company.
