LPN to ADN/ASN Bridge in the Atlanta, GA area


I am looking for an LPN to ADN/ASN bridge program in the Atlanta area. I am a single mom who works Mon-Fri 8:30-5pm. I am hoping to find one that is mostly online & won't require me to go to class/lab more than one day a week. Also one that has the option to do clinicals on the weekends. Please help!

That might be kinda hard unless you do do an online program. Which can be very expensive. A lot of the programs don't allow you to work, but I need to work. Let me know if you find one. I know some bridge programs are 18 months.

I was looking into Excelsior but the GA BON sent me a packet of extra steps I'd have to take if I go to a "non-traditional" school before they'd consider giving me an RN license. I have to work, too & my job is willing to work with me if I'd need to go to class. More than one day a week will be almost impossible b/c I need my hours. Every bridge I've looked into is one year but I'd have to be in class daily or a few times a week at least.

Gwinnett tech has a LPN to RN bridge and from what I'm hearing you only have lecture, 1-2 times per week depending on semester and 1-2 days per week clinical. For me that will work,because I work 12s. I dont know of any besides the non traditional that are any less days than that. Good luck though. :-)
