I am a student with ATP and the program is great! It is an LPN to RN bridge program which can be accomplished in about 18 months. ATP offers day, evening, Saturday and virtual classes. The teachers are great and really want to see the students succeed!
I have heard nothing but EXCELLENT things about this program. If you are wanting to become an RN, and want to do it faster, easier and with more flexibility, Achieve Test Prep is the only way to go!! You use the credit-by-examination method, and they prepare you to study for the exam, pass the course, and get credit for the course as if you had actually taken it. You can attend one of their physical campuses, or attend their online Virtual class. All their classes are live and run by real instructors, this is NOT a self-study program. Plus, it's a less expensive way to get your RN. This is the best fast-track way to go.
I have been looking for an lpn to rn program for the past few years. All of the programs I looked at were either too expensive, did not fit into my work schedule or offered no support-just books. Finally after listening to the advice of a friend, I found Achieve. So far I have taken 2 classes and passed the exams. I would never have been able to do this without the help of this program. They have actual RN's to help you study and answer your questions. I hope to be finished in about another year. Never would have been able to do this without Achieve!!
I would like to simply express my personal experience with Achieve Test Prep since I have noticed negative comments. I understand everyone has a different opinion we are all unique individuals and for some perhaps this program has not worked. However, I am glad I came across ATP because I am only a few classes away from completion and achieving my career goals. I started the program with no college credits. The instructors teach the material well, I don't leave my house since I take virtual classes, and from day one every time I need help with something or have questions someone always calls me back. I am very satisfied with how ATP operates as a company and also how they have helped me and guided me every step of the way. Credit by exam college programs require lots of determination from the student, and as a student myself, dedication is the key to prepare for each exam but ATP makes things simpler.

I wish YP had stars in minus. I could give minus 5. Be careful and read contract carefully before you sign enrollment contract. Their contract is like legal scam if for some reason you have to withdraw from program after couple months. I have not even completed 1 class. I sat through 3 sessions in A&P class. I did not learn anything ( I was valedictorian at LPN school ). First, the person who enrolled me said financed amount would not show up in credit. That was a lie. It screwed up my credit. I said to myself lets not focus on negatives, lets do this and finish the course. Registered for A&P with another instructor. I have not started class yet. Then I got some personal issues to take care of and decided to withdraw anyhow. They charged me almost $2600 for nothing. Oh yes. I have not even completed one class. They said they charge for Student Orientation and Achieve 101 which have nothing to do with nursing classes. Its their classes. Insane.
I had looked into Colleges and other online programs in the past, and was previously enrolled in Excelsior College, but lacked the discipline to study and learn on my own. Unfortunately, I wasted a lot of time and money and still had nothing to show for it. I learned about Achieve Test Prep online one night while searching for LPN-RN Bridge Programs and thought it was too good to be true, this program actually seemed doable for someone like me who works and has small children to take care of. I met with a Representative within a few days, and though very nervous about what I was getting myself into, signed up on the spot.
So, here I sit, about 2 1/2 years later and I am almost DONE!!!! I had ZERO College Credits so I literally started from scratch. I have also only taken one class at a time so it's taking me a little bit longer than it might take someone else. Achieve has classes right down the street from me, and also offers Virtual Classes which have been a lifesaver. I'll admit, I sit in class sometimes while folding laundry in my jammies but that's what I LOVE about it!!! I have passed every exam the first time too and know that there is no way I could have come this far on my own. The teachers are amazing and Achieve really concentrates on and breaks down what we need to know to pass these exams. I am so happy that I found this program and strongly believe that it's worth every dime. Achieve Test Prep is perfect, you actually "GO TO SCHOOL" but it's so much quicker and easier than doing it on your own. I need all the help I can get, and either way, it's still cheaper than a "brick and mortar" school and so much more convenient.
I want to also mention that besides being a current student of Achieve Test Prep that I also signed on for their work study program as well and therefore am able have some earnings thorough ATP to help with the costs of the program.
I am a student here and I love this program. So far I have taken 2 tests and passed both. I work full time and have 4 kids and this is the only program that has worked for me. They more than prepare you to be an RN, the teachers are excellent and the way the program is set up is very convenient.
This is the way to go if you are an LPN wanting to get your RN. You can get your RN quicker, easier, with more flexibility and it's less expensive. They prepare you to pass all the courses you need by passing the exams. You are taught by RN's. You can go on campus or attend virtually. If you need extra help in certain subjects you are having trouble with, they will tutor you individually. They are great about not requiring long-term contracts and even have a refund policy. The students love this program and it's the best way out there.
