I got a big letter and a small one...

  1. Well, the mailbox game is over... I applied for both: RN and LPN program and I got into the LPN. I'm really happy of course and glad I decided to apply for both. Our school had over 600 applicants and only 30 RN and 20 LPN students made it. I'm the only one in my study group who made it, and none of my classmates in Anat/Phys. made it either. Scarry.
    I've taken all non-nursing classes by the end of the summer, so all I have to do is take 2 semesters of LPN classes and I'm done. I'd like to do the bridge, but was told that I had to work fulltime for 6 mo. to be able to.
    Anyone here done a bridge program and can give me some advice please?
    Or should I just apply for the RN again ( if I do it would be at another school--it seems to be impossible to make it into the RN here unless you are a Paramedic/CNA/etc. already).
    Thank you for taking the time to read this... I am so happy God answered my prayers, and I'm on my way to be a nurse

    Congrats. I was an LPN for two years while I did an ADN. Really wished I had just done the BSN, because now (many years later) am still in school!!

    I got a reject for the RN program. I just took the PSB for LPN school, and am applying for the RN at another school. Congrats on being accepted to LPN school! At least if you're an LPN first, your future employer should help pay for you to go back to be an RN later.

    First of all CONGRATULATIONS! I didn't know that you had to work full-time to go into a bridge program.Do some checking on that because some LPN's go straight into the RN-bridge. It may be different in some state's but I'll check at work and see if this is true and will let you know.

    God Bless

    Super!! Congratulations!

    Maybe if you cannot bridge right away, you can get any pre-req's done that you may not have. That should keep you busy, and if you get into someplace with tuition reimbursement, you may get your degree for little or no cost. I know a lot of hospitals that do that around here.
