I just passed my LPN boards a few weeks ago, and I am enjoying my new career. However, I have been looking into schools around my area where I can bridge into an RN program. I did my LPN privately, and I know of a few community colleges in the area that offer the LPN to RN bridge. I have been contacting these schools via email in order to get a few of my questions answered, and all of the replies I have gotten back are incredibly negative. It disgusts me that these nursing instructors are so rude and cold. With a nursing shortage, you would think that fellow nurses would be more understanding.
So basically I was told that it is very difficult to get in the program as an advanced standing student, to go elsewhere, and one school even told me that is would be a diservice to their current students to let LPNs into their ADN program for the second year.
I feel so dissapointed right now....I feel like there is no where for me to go to complete my RN. Has anyone else experienced this???
