Feel like Im at a dead end

  1. hello all! I need some advise. I just graduated from a LPN program and recently passed my board exam. Now I want to bridge to the RN program here in NY but I don't know where to go. Private schools such as helene fuld scares the hell out of me with their admission process. LaGuardia is out of question because I have 2 degrees there therefore cannot take their bridge. I feel like Im at the dead end

    Try LIU the brooklyn campus. They have an bridge program, there admission process is not difficult by no means. They are just a little to expensive but hopefully Ill be out of there by May, 2007:hatparty:

    Hi keisha!
    I don't have an AS degree in nursing. I have a degree in LPN, I think the bridge only applies to RN with an AS degree.

    Im sorry your right. Have u ever heard of a bridge program for LPN's usually they are for nurses. I know an LPN that attends LIU and she has been an LPN for at least 15 years. You may have to start from the beginning.

    HI LSaunders6
    thanks for the respond. Yes will infor u for any such programs. By the way have u checked LaGuardia College, they have a transitional program that just started. I would like to go there but cant due to the fact I have 2 degrees in that school and their system is not meant to take a third one.

    WHy are you afraid of Helen Fuld? You will not know if you can get in unless you try. There are two programs in Westchester (Hopfer and St John's) that have LPN bridge programs, as well as the other CUNY colleges that offer RN degrees.
