Nowhere on the website does it specify that this is a RMA-to-RN degree program.Correction Miami Dade College is one college I know for sure that offers RMA to RN bridge into the nursing program and they have been offering it for years.
The Bridge Option is designed for Licensed Practical Nurses (PN) and other individuals with specific health-related education and license/certification who desire to become Registered Nurses. Graduates earn an Associate in Science Degree and are eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination to become Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

It doesn't seem like a bridge at all. The prerequisites look identical to me with the exception of HSC 0003, Introduction to Health Care being waived.
The pre-req needed to get into the nursing program are the same the every entering class. The intro to Healthcare can be waived if you have a current CPR license. The programs curriculum are slightly different from the genetic program and can be completed in 3 semesters. Those with a Bachelor's can even advance ahead in the accelerator nursing program
