- by TXUKGal Jun 14, '09Hi All
I've been lurking for a bit but decided to go ahead and ask my question(s). I am a nurse in Texas but currently living out of the country. I am planning to move back to the States where I want to bridge from my LVN to my RN.
My questions are.........would it be better to bridge in Texas before moving to Oregon? Can someone recommend any good schools to bridge at please?

The CC used to have bridge programs but the CC have gone to OCNE program and really dont bridge anymore

I would have to take all my pre-req's as it's been longer than 5 years and then apply like everyone else and hope my grades are good enough to get me in in a timely fashion.I know that at MT Hood CC if you are an LPN they put you first in line to get into the RN class, hope that helps

- Jan 2, '10 by LoveMyBugsQuote from TXUKGalI am at PCC and I know that once you are accepted into the program and you are an LPN that they evaluate your skills and place you accordingly. There is a student in my cohort that was a LPN that started 1 term later then the rest of us, but you still have to apply and go through the whole interview point process, and I they may not do that anymore because next year PCC is OCNEThanks for that info. I'll need to look deeper into that. It would be nice to be placed based on skills.
