I have been an LPN for 2 years now and I have been working in a skilled nursing facility since I graduated and passed my boards. I work the 3-11 shift (at first I didn't mind, but now I just want a daylight job). I recently accepted a position at a dermatology office all daylight hours no weekends or holidays 🙌🏼 So I've been thinking about checking another goal off of my list and get my RN. I found a bridge program all online through excelsior college that sounds amazing. its all accredited. And says you can do some clinical through online simulation. Also you have to be a working lpn with direct patient care and working under an RN. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about this school/program that could give some advice or info.

I am currently enrolled...taking my 2nd class. I really like it. I am working on my pre-regs at the moment. It is a alot of work...lots of papers and you must be really focused. My instructor posts assignments midnight Sunday with the due date, most due the following Sunday. You must participate in weekly discussions ect...So its a lot of time online. Good Luck!!

Thank you so much! Now will it matter that I'm going to be working in a dr office? I'll still have direct pt care and will be working under an RN. Or do they want you working in a nursing home setting?
