Bridging BScN to MD...Possible?


Has 6 years experience.

I'm a new grad RPN and I'm planning to bridge BScN in Jan 2021. I'm contemplating med school right after, but recently I heard that med school does not consider RN nurses who bridged...completed undergrad in 3 years. I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is any truth to this. Anyone who has personal experience in this situation.

Perhaps it is a misunderstanding..I would appreciate any clarification please. Thank you!

If your goal is to become a doctor, why not just attend a pre-med program instead of becoming an RN first? (I'm assuming that you're not in the US, and that RPN is registered practical nurse, similar to LPN, licensed practical nurse).

The BSN programs (in the US at least) wouldn't be the best way to prepare for medical school, not without piling on additional classes...
