If you are determined to get your RN,you can get it there.A friend of mine already has done it.Good luck!

It is 3 semesters and you are done. There is one evening a week classroom and 1 day a week clinic.
After reading all of the other post I have to say....
This program may NOT be for everyone, ie those saying they have been a LPN for +10 years and do not feel it would be enough time.
However, I am so thankful the program is back in place because there are those, like myself, who are comfortable. I have a lot of medical experience not to mention a higher understanding. The program I completed my LPN through taught on an RN level. I function above the RNs I work with daily and they come to me.

I Read your post. Noticed your name. You ARE SMART already. Test taking may not come easy, but there are ways to deal with that. You may not grasp things as quickly as others, since you feel you have a learning deficit, but that just means you put in more work until you get it.

May 24, '11Joined: May '11; Posts: 284; Likes: 681The RN bridge program I am going to is 3 semesters. The transition semester and the final year of RN school. I spent 2 semesters getting my pre-reqs, though... the 3 semesters to complete my RN are ALL nursing classes...
Most CC offer a bridge program... all are different though.. most are 3 semesters + pre-reqs. I know in VA, tidewater cc and such, you have to have received your LPN within 5 years, though or start over - which seems backwards to me - because the longer you have hands on, the more you learn... but I guess you forget some of the "book material." But, that is why the transition class in imperative, 5 days a week for at least 6 weeks, and from what I've heard DIFFICULT... but, I wouldn't have it any other way.
