I have been accepted to the Summer LVN-RN bridge program and was hoping I could get some insight on what to do to prepare, from someone who has already bridged. I work at a prison and feel as if I have lost a lot of my skills/knowledge. The syllabus will be available a week before school, but unfortunately I will be out of the country and wont have access to a computer. I would like to be able to take my books on the plane & study when traveling. Can anyone give me some ideas of what to study/read ahead? TIA
Hi WendyWhooHoo, you responded to my posts, but they were deleted. I didnt realize I couldnt post about my uniforms here. Feel free to email me at Loloi2@aol.com.
The book is the 8th Edition. The pants are small, and I believe the tops are medium. Apparently the tags are gone in the shirts and I am not home, but I will try them on when I get home and can compare them to my other scrub tops. I will let you know when I find out.
Hi, I was accepted into the BC-Cerro Coso program, but cant attend due to the days interfering with my job. I have 2 of the red scrub tops and 2 black pants if anyone is interested. I also have the Plumer's Principle of IV Therapy book if anyone is interested. I will sell them CHEAP!!
Hi Skybmonkey. I am in the program and I start the transition course on July 1. Can I pick your brain about the schedule? Is the program three days a week, or is it 4?
I think mine were mediums. Do you want them? Let me know, I'll give them to you for free
Can anyone tell me if they know of anyone willing to sell their used scrubs for the AV program? I am a single mom, starting the bridge program this summer, and any savings will be a great help. TIA
Also, it may not pay a lot, but Henry Mayo Hospital in Santa Clarita always has "new grad" classes starting. It paid around 15.50 when I checked into it in the summer of 2009. It was working med/surg so you would get quite a bit of experience in different things. Good luck, and dont be discouraged. There are lots of jobs for LVNs in nursing homes, rehabs, etc, just not that many in hospitals. However, if you are willing to start in a nursing home or something like that, it will be considered experience and you can always get the "perfect" job later.
Your story brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy for you, and I know you will be one of the kinds of nurses we really need. I am also older than most of the other students I graduated with (41) and it is definitely harder than in your 20s, but your experience with life, and your love, will make you the best nurse of all. GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS.
Good luck to you new students. I graduated last December and just got my license about 2 weeks ago, and have to find a job SOON!!! Study hard, and make sure when you are at clinical you let your nurse you are working with know that you want to do as much as you can, and you will learn LOTS and your nurses will love you....
I personally have not used the program, but Indiana State University does have an online LVN to RN program that is accepted by the state of CAlifornia, because they are partnered somehow with a college in Cali. I am actually thinking of going through them. Good Luck.
I just got my results of my N-Clex, thank God I passed, but am not sure how to make my resume with my clinical experience. Does anyone have any samples they can send me, for a new LVN? Thanks so much in advance. Please post here or send me a private message.
