LPN to RN online bridge programs
- 0May 4, '13 by MrsBeeHello, I'm currently in school for my LPN and I graduate in January. I'm an Army wife and an online program would be very beneficial for me. Any insight would be helpful.

Do your research, though, because not all states accept degrees from this college. Also, I think Excelsior College has special rates to military students and their families. Since you graduate in January, you have plenty of time to check into this and other programs and any perspective Board of Nursing. Good luck to you!

As the previous poster mentioned, not all state boards of nursing will accept education from online RN bridge programs due to issues with clinical hours.
