Hi, I'm in the LPN-RN bridge program and am about to begin studying for Transitions. Would love to connect with fellow students in the area to have study sessions in person, and/or online. Also, want to find someone to keep in touch with that's at the same stage, but may not necessarily be in NC. Basically , I'm searching for a "classmate" so that we can help keep each other on track. Motivated to finish in 2012. Let's embark on this journey together!

Not in NC, but I'm really close by. I planning on completing the program and seeking a NC license for my 960 hours that VA requires. Just starting out in the program with the 7 nursing exams left to complete, taking the first one this week.

Hello All,

Thanks for your replies. @scorpio82lse, I'm an hour away from Raleigh, NC. @RyanCarolinaBoy, I don't have enough posts to PM yet. Maybe you could PM me if you can. @Nervous1, that's great. Hope you are/were successful on your first test :-). All of you are welcome to email me: futuristicladee@aol.com. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hey there! I'm starting out as well, but I'm in SC, but we all could still study together online or just for encouragement. I wish you all much success! My email is n_q_w@hotmail.com

A lot of folks use Skype to study together, especially when it is time to practice for the CPNE. Just an idea!! :)

Hi BestSweetGal! I'm going to send you an email. Thanks LunahRN, that's a great idea. I was thinking video chat as well, but I have an oovoo account. I'll check into making a skype.

Hello FuturisticLadee,

I'm looking into Excelsior LPN-Rn bridge program and I have one more transcript to send this week. My goal is also to complete a bridge program by 2012. Hopefully I will be in the North Carolina area by the end of the year. Study partners can be an asset. I'm not sure what exact transitions course you will be starting with but nevertheless goodluck.
