Education has always been linked to self-reliance and the ability to think, create, and contribute to society. From the founding of our country on July 4, 1776, Americans have celebrated the freedom to pursue their dreams and ambitions through education.
However, as a working professional, the challenge of earning an advanced degree can seem daunting. Balancing work, family, and other responsibilities can make it difficult to find the time and resources needed to pursue further education.
It’s time to declare independence over your nursing education
For some of us, the traditional method of earning a degree doesn’t work. We have a family. We have a job. We have responsibilities that won’t go away if we decide to go back to school. We need a way to get the education we need and advance in our career that won’t interrupt the life we’ve built around us.
This is where Achieve comes in. Achieve has developed a way to help working healthcare professionals with the opportunity to begin the education they need —with a clear supportive RN path that causes less disruption to daily life.
You have the right to understand exactly what you need to advance your career.
There is so much information about nursing education that it can be a little overwhelming when trying to decide how to take the first step. It doesn’t matter where you’re starting (LPN, CNA, Med Asst, Paramedic, or EMT) or how much college education you’ve completed in the past—Achieve can help you determine exactly what you will need to do in order to reach your goal and enables you to live your life while still achieving your goals, establishing a realistic, attainable path towards your RN.
After contacting Achieve, the first step is to complete your personalized Bridge Plan. This plan will be used as a guide to complete your LPN to RN, CNA to RN, Paramedic to RN, or Medical Assistant to RN Bridge Program. It will map out all the classes you’ll need to earn your degree and tell you when to enroll in nursing school. Knowing how to plan for college makes all the steps along the way much easier.
You have the right to choose when and where you learn.
Most education programs require you to attend classes at certain times during the day, but this isn’t conducive to working full time while going back to school. When you begin a program with Achieve, you’ll be able to go at your own pace as you move through nursing prerequisites. You’ll attend an online class once each week, and learn from live instructors when it is convenient for you.
“Something that was really challenging for me before Achieve is the colleges in my area only have select classes at certain times, so you have to work around their schedule. Achieve has whatever you need for your schedule.” Karina C. from Rhode Island
You have the right to learn at your own pace.
Earning a degree takes hard work and dedication. There may be times when you need to take a step back and slow down your studies as outside responsibilities increase, and that’s ok. There also may be times when you want to move more quickly to complete a course. That’s great too!
Achieve’s distinct credit-by-examination Bridge Program allows you to control the speed of your program. We make learning more convenient, more affordable, and often much faster by combining the effectiveness of real classroom instruction, in an online environment with the speed of credit-by-examination, which will allow you to earn the same credits you would have earned working through an entire semester-long class.
You have the right to support when, and if, you need it.
You may have heard of self-study programs where you purchase a study guide or course materials, and then you’re expected to pass all your courses and earn credit alone. Achieve is different. All of our classes are led live, by real instructors, but with the benefit of an online environment. You’ll choose to attend the classes that fit your schedule, and we’ll work to ensure your success.
You don’t have to work toward your education goals alone. Achieve will go the extra mile to support you throughout your RN RN Bridge Program. We will help you test out of nursing prerequisites through credit-by-examination, prepare for the TEAS, HESI and other nursing school entrance exams, provide on-demand tutoring when you need it, and offer you detailed NCLEX-RN exam preparation to help take you across the finish line.
