I know that VCC has a waitlist for their generic rn track and that applicants just need to complete the minimum requirements to be put on the waitlist but I was wondering if the lpn-rn bridge program was similar. After completing the pre-reqs and applying do they accept you into the next class or is it more competitive?

No it is not similar, it is much harder to get into. You have to have all of your pre-reqs completed, take the TEAS, be IV certified, CPR up to date, and then pay he app fee. They have a new group start each semester, but the class size is fairly small, under 25 if I remember correctly. They go by GPA more that anything, and I know that it typically cuts off around 3.4. It's pretty competitive.

I was accepted after my first apllication (start fall'14) My overall gpa was 3.25; however, it was that low because i didn't withdraw from a semester in time and i had 3 Fs on my transcript. I had an A in all of my pre-reqs with the exception of a B in Microbiology. My TEAS score was 83%.
