do any schools offer a LVN to RN bridge in California?

  1. I have been searching as I live in an area that I can not attend a physical school and really want to start a bridge.

    Sorry, i just reread your question.

    Can you contact the school from which you received your LVN training about bridging to RN?

    the school I went to is 250 miles away from where I live and work now. I moved after graduation for a great job opportunity.

    If you're looking for online options to go LVN->RN, none do, that I'm aware of. You must do a clinical component that occurs in the same semester/quarter as your classroom subject. All RN programs that are BRN approved MUST offer an LVN to RN bridge course. That program is 30 units long and is known as the "30 Unit Option." That bridge course does NOT have to result in a degree. Some colleges offer a bridge program that gives prior credit for LVN and you take the 2nd year of school and you will end up with the same degree that the "regular" students get.

    At least that's how I understand things.

    I guess I will hit my 1 year at this job and move to an area I can take school
