I'm currently enrolled in the LPN program, but I'm already planning ahead for my future. After I graduate and work for a year, I'd like to do an LPN to BSN bridge program. I've spoken with two of my teachers who did the bridge programs themselves years ago, but the programs are no longer offered at the schools they went to.
I cannot find any LPN to BSN bridge programs in my state (Louisiana), even though I'm told they're out there. Actually, let me rephrase that, I found one school. It's one of the Universities here. However, the program is 4 years long, 8 semesters. The same as the traditional BSN program!
Every other school here offers either an LPN to ADN (RN) program or an ADN (RN) to BSN program. But no LPN to BSN program.
That was my ultimate goal, so I'm starting to feel upset and a bit flustered. Are LPN to BSN bridge programs really that hard to come by everywhere, or does it happen to just be my state?
I really hate to do the LPN to ADN program, and THEN do an ADN to BSN program. Just seems like a long road to the same destination.
