- Jan 8, '08 by SophiaTsaiI want to know about the "bridge program" as well. I heard that before...but can't find any related information. Can somebody please help? Thank you so much!
- There is no bridge from PSW to RPN. You can bridge from RPN to RN however.

- That course does not give you your RPN diploma.It is 2 days /week for 14 weeks.The RPN course is 5 semesters long and takes 2.5 years to complete if you go full time.
- You take this program and then you take the RPN program just like anyone else. It is not neccessary to take it to take the RPN program and it doesn't make the program any shorter.Last edit by loriangel14 on Jan 8, '08
