LPN to RN bridge programs in Mississippi

  1. I am a California LVN student who will graduate in July of this year. After graduating, I would be interested in entering a bridge to RN program and was wondering if anyone could tell me if Mississippi offers LPN to RN bridge programs. I looked on the Internet but didn't find anything, which may just mean I didn't look hard enough

    My daughter and her family live in Fulton, so I would like to enter a program in that area, or maybe in Tupelo.

    Thankyou for any help you can offer me.

    If there is anything else you think I might be interested in, please feel free to include that information as well. I have never been to Mississippi and appreciate any and all advice!

    Here on the MS Gulf Coast, all community colleges offer bridge programs.

    As far as Tupelo goes, just find out the college there, and call and ask them about the ADN programs.

    Northeast MS community college has an ADN program and Itawamba (in fulton and tupelo) has a program. I think they all offer a bridge program. Here is a link to Itawamba CC.

    Hope this helps
