LPN to RN bridge programs in Mississippi
- 0Feb 2, '08 by lvnhopefulI am a California LVN student who will graduate in July of this year. After graduating, I would be interested in entering a bridge to RN program and was wondering if anyone could tell me if Mississippi offers LPN to RN bridge programs. I looked on the Internet but didn't find anything, which may just mean I didn't look hard enough
My daughter and her family live in Fulton, so I would like to enter a program in that area, or maybe in Tupelo.
Thankyou for any help you can offer me.
If there is anything else you think I might be interested in, please feel free to include that information as well. I have never been to Mississippi and appreciate any and all advice!Last edit by lvnhopeful on Feb 2, '08 : Reason: Want to ask for more information

Hope this helps
