    Here is the addy for E-Town Community College.You can check about the bridge program. It is very hard to get in here, and there is no wating list. Entrance is based on your GPA, & NLN score. I think the pay for RN's (new grads) around the Louisville area is around $18-$19.00. I live farther south & I am starting out at $17.50 + 13% shift diff. Good Luck!

    It was based on the pre-req classes.....not sure if your LPN classes would transfer or not. This would be something I would ask. Another good school is St. Catharines it is located just a little ways from Bardstown. I went to ECC for my pre-reqs, & attended St. Catharines for my ADN. I had people from Louisville in my classes at both schools. St. Catharines also does not have a waiting list & goes by GPA, entrance exam, essay, & interview process. St. Catharines is pricey, & is a private Catholic school. I don't think you could go wrong w/either one of them! I don't think St. Catharines has a bridge....but you could check.Good Luck

    Your best bet is to work in Louisville, KY. NortonHealthcare.com is a great place to search jobs. They have a great scholarship program that you can apply for to assist you financially to go back to school. My husband had to dedicate 16 months for the 8k he got from the scholarship. However, if you are looking for high pay.. Your best bet is Long Term Care. Yeah, i'm sure its not what you want to hear. But that is where the money is. I currently work at a Nursing home making 20/hr. Wander why i don't go to the hospital. $$$
