    It does make it shorter as you get credits for your psw prgm when you go through the bridging prgm...
    You get no credit for having your PSW already.

    In Ontario, PSW's get a credit for the first Semester for the bridging program. They are put into second semester I do believe. I know Sir Sandford Fleming College does the PSW to RPN briding program, but they are in Peterborough - a fair ways away from Niagara Region

    Peterborough has one of the highest average ages in Canada, so there are plenty of LTC centers here.

    Which schools allow that?

    I know there's essentially a "bridging" program ONLY offered at George Brown, but in reality it's just an extra year of RPN (so the bridge + RPN takes 3 years)

    There's no school in Ontario that puts PSW's into semester 2 of RPN. It's impossible. RPN's learn Biology, anatomy, theory, professional conduct in semester 1 that PSW's don't learn throughout their whole program, so how can you throw a PSW straight into semester 2, skipping all of that?

    There's no such thing. PSW's have to apply and start from the beginning just like anyone else.
