RPN Diploma to BSN? Any suggestions

  1. 0
    Hi all,

    I've been a practicing RPN (diploma) in BC for almost a decade and would love nothing more than to expand my scope of practice and employment opportunities.

    I am wondering if any of my wonderful colleagues on this forum may know of any RN BSN programs which would grant Diploma graduate RPN's access to "bridge in", allotting for work experience, rather than needing to complete the RPN degree prior to entry.

    I am aware of some Correspondence/ on line programs such as Charles Stuart however they are deceiving as I would still not be able to practice as a RN.

    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated !

    Do you mean certificate? I have my PN diploma and am bridging. Certificate PNs cannot. ( here in ON)
