  1. Hey all,

    I happen to live in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, where many LVN-to-RN bridge programs exist. Here's a list of all of the bridge programs that I can think of in DFW, North Texas, and East Texas:

    1. Tarrant County College, Fort Worth (LVN-to-RN)
    2. El Centro College, Dallas (LVN-to-RN)
    3. Brookhaven College, Farmers Branch (LVN-to-RN)
    4. Tarleton State University, Stephenville (LVN-to-BSN)
    5. Weatherford College, Weatherford (LVN-to-RN)
    6. Hill College, Cleburne (LVN-to-RN)
    7. Navarro College, Corsicana (LVN-to-RN)
    8. Trinity Valley Community College, Kaufman (LVN-to-RN)
    9. North Central Texas College, Gainesville (LVN-to-RN)
    10. Northeast Texas Community College, Mount Pleasant (LVN-to-RN)
    11. Grayson County College, Denison (LVN-to-RN)
    12. Paris Junior College, Paris (LVN-to-RN)
    13. Angelina College, Jasper (LVN-to-RN)
    14. Texarkana College, Texarkana (LVN-to-RN)
    15. Cisco Junior College, Abilene (LVN-to-RN)
    16. Angelo State University, San Angelo (LVN-to-RN)
    17. McLennan College, Waco (LVN-to-RN)

    There are many more of these bridge program in Texas, but this is all I can think of at the moment. I hope this is useful.

    Just about any community college should offer a nursing program, or at least out here in california, just about all of them do. Be careful though, you might be in for a surprise.

    When I went to golden west here in huntington beach I found out that I had to take every single one of the pre-requisites, including anatomy and pharmacology (which i'm taking this semester.... what a bore) They've taken away the anatomy and pharmacology credits they've given all of us LVN's that in the past we'd get just by having the license, BS yeah I agree, just makes for 2 more courses I have to take. Also, some colleges will require you to take a summer bridge course (like mine) which is two days a week over the summer, just to get you up to date and ready to bridge in at 3rd semester.

    Thanks Wayne,

    I was wondering about the A&P. I was hoping my A&P 1 and 2 that I had in my LVN program would count.

    The Baptist School of Health Professions in San Antonio is another school that offers the LVN-RN bridge program.

    Just check with the schools around you, find out what pre-requisites you have to take, some of them, like mine give entrance points for sciences like anatomy and physiology, and you'll find too some schools won't accept anatomy/phisiology as a combined course, they want you to take them separately. So just be careful.
