RN Bridge program ?
- 0Aug 23, '12 by dcd.lopezHi you guys i really need help. Im looking into lpn to rn bridge program but it has been hard for me to find a school.
I need you guys opinion i heard about and I did some research about the online rnbridgeprogram.com for LPN to RN which can take form 7 months to a year. Has anyone heard about that school? Is it accredited ? It sounds perfect for me but Im not sure if is too good to be true.
Look forward to anyone's opinion. Thanks

We had a lady come into our class about it and our professor definitely did not recommend it. Plus, a lot of hospitals look down on it and say that the RNs from those programs are not adequately prepared to be nurses when they are finished.
- 0Aug 23, '12 by Susie2310I have seen some hospitals that are recruiting for RN internship programs say that they will not accept applications from graduates of online schools. My understanding is that RN licensure requires a certain number of clinical hours of direct patient care, and supervised lab instruction/theory. It is important to graduate from an accredited school of nursing. You could check with your State Board of Registered Nursing as to the status of online schools.
