Anyone else feel like crying? 😆

At midterm of my bridge- middle of 8 week long classes before we transition into the senior year of traditional RN program. Sooo very overwhelmed! They assume we know a lot of things but I am quickly finding out I don't know anything! Just looking for others to commiserate with. 😁

I applied to my college's RN bridge program but there weren't enough LPN-RN bridge applicants so I was offered a seat in the entry level program... I took it. I have a feeling the review of the fundamentals etc will be beneficial. I guess that new Florida statute probably has something to do with there not being enough LPN's that graduated within the last 5 years trying to get their RN. If you graduated 6+ years ago then you have to start at entry level.

So I'm guessing it's a good thing to start from the beginning.

Me too! This may be because things have changed so much from when we were originally trained. I'm reading the book and I'm thinking, "oh, that's changed....and that, and that....and that..." and I have to relearn the new way and try to forget the old!

When did this start? I'm in Florida, licensed for 15 years, and halfway threw an accelerated bridge program right now. I'm not trying to be argumentative, just curious.

Maybe it isn't state-wide then. My college requires that we are accepted into the RN transitions program within 5 years of our graduation date. It changed last year and now all of a sudden there aren't many transitions applicants. :/

Sorry to bust in on a different subject . I was intrigued as to which bridge program you are currently enrolled in ?? I am looking in the Tampa area for program and wanted to get your guidance if able.

thanks :)
