Just finished doing my CASPer assessment and am waiting for the replies on whether or not I got into the bridging RN schools I've applied to. But I wanted to see if there is any tips you can give me about going to full time schooling again, especially briging from practical nurse to school for RN. I did my practical nursing as prt time and the schools I've applied too did not have a part time option, so full time was the route to go. Any tips and advise would help. thank you in advance. 🙂

I think just doing the assigned readings/questions, making notes, asking questions, studying ahead of time before exams, figuring out why you didn't do well initially and you'll be golden.

I haven't done RPN but have gone from doing school part-time, to being off for a year, to being a full-time student. I think the most important thing is attitude, if you're going in with an open-mind and willingness to be prepared and learn, then you'll be successful. The transition can be overwhelming if you haven't been in school for a while, however I imagine going from RPN to RN being an easier transition than going from an unrelated field to RN. Using a wall calendar with dates on assignments/tests/lectures has been helpful for me, as well as having 'study' (friend) groups for reminders, emotional support and accountability. I also plan my life around school- not the other way around (including family/friends, work, errands,etc.). Also, staying on top of reading is a big one, as it can be a lot harder to fall behind on them as a full-time student rather than a part-time student imo. It's also extremely important to make sure you communicate with profs/ college staff to make sure you're using all the supports you can, if you're not familiar with them already. Emailing the college (s) you've applied to about the transition from part-time RPN to full-time RN might give you some insight as well. Good luck and I hope you get accepted!!
