I just completed the LPN to RN bridge program (NUR 190 + 195) on Friday and want to give you a heads up and warning on them. The 3 credit online course via Charter Oak College (NUR 190) is pretty easy. Basically you're asked do care plans
(which are not difficult, just time consuming and they want you to use verbiage word for word out of the nsg diagnosis textbook), an online workbook (super easy), and then discussion board postings (weeks 1,2, and 10).
THEN, after your done with Charter Oak's online class you have to take a 1 credit "practicum" at your home school. They word "practicum" that they use is very misleading because it's a little bit of hands on learning (the easy part) AND they absolutely slam you with an accelerated course of Med Surg in which you're expected to read and learn 5-6 chapters per week from your thick a** Med Surg book and will be tested on at each of your weekly meetings. And if you complain about the workload they will merely state "well, you chose to take this accelerated course so deal with it." I would highly, highly recommend trying to get in touch with your NUR 195 instructor ahead of time and get the syllabus and study before the start of the class. You will have a math medication test (which consists of you knowin your equivalencies...oz in a cup, how many pints in a liter, etc.) your first day of class where they give you 3 tries to get a passing score but they take your first attempt as part of your overall grade. Be sure to study ahead of time for that exam as well.
The workload of the 1 credit course warrented it to be worth 3 credits and the 3 credit class at Charter Oak should have been the 1 credit course. I was shocked and surprised at this and just wanted to give those going into the course in the future a heads up. Best of luck to you!
