Nursing in Nova ScotiaRegister Today!
- by mLPN79 Dec 10, '11Hello!
I would like to know if RPN's (Registered Psychiatric Nurses) are recognized in Nova Scotia? I am planning on moving to NS and I think it would be in my best interests to bridge over from LPN before heading that way, but unsure if RPN is something I should do.
Also, is there a distance learning program there that bridges LPN to BSN?

Good luck with whatever you choose.

A lot of nurses I know have used Athabasca to obtain their BScN and enjoyed it. http://www2.athabascau.ca/programs/bnlpn/
