There's RN-Bridging and RPN-Bridging to earn a degree (BSCN). Remember, since the early 2000s, Registered Nurses are now required to obtain degrees. Becoming a registered nurse in the past only required you to take a 2-3 year diploma program and RNs who've gone through those programs have been "grandfathered" into the system (i.e., they get to use the RN title and scope of practice without the BScN). However, there are some diploma RNs that want BSCN to gain supervisory/management/advance practice roles so they end up taking the RN-Bridging program. RPN-bridging are for RPNs that want to become RNs.
