Starting rn program in 2 weeks. Lpn school was tough so I can't really anticipate what my RN program will be like. I'm nervous but the big difference for me is now I work at a hospital so I'm hoping the concepts and transition to professional nursing will be easier. Any advice on what to expect in an rn prgram and any great study materials to help along the way? 18 months for my bridge program and I want to do great!

Congrats! I graduate in two months from a bridge program. It wasn't as intense for me as PN school was but not easy either! It's really about changing your way of thinking and how to intervene in situations. Instead of "reporting to the RN" you have to wrap your head around the fact that you are the RN that is being reported to, now what's your intervention going to be? Good luck to you! If you made it through LPN school you will make it through this! I don't really have many pointers as far as books that you might need. If you don't have a good care plan book with the new NANDA that was just released it would be helpful. You will do great!
