So I have been thinking about going back to school to get my RN.
My question is, has any other LVN's done the same through a bridge program?
Also, did you find it more of a breeze going through the bridge program because you were basically
just re-learning certain things?

I first attained licensure as an LVN in early 2006. I enrolled in an LPN-to-RN associates degree bridge program in early 2009, graduated this past March, and passed the NCLEX-RN in May. Overall, the program was not very difficult or challenging. Of course, I'm describing my own personal experiences, and everyone is going to have a different experience.
The RN program tended to go more in-depth with the disease processes and psychosocial factors so that we could supposedly see the "big picture." Otherwise, I would opine that the RN program that I attended was actually easier than the LVN program that I completed.
