LPN to RN bridge program in new york or new jersey?

By | November 30, 2015

I am currently enrolled in an LPN nursing program in New York. I want to continue on to get my bachelors degree as an RN. I am having trouble because I don’t know where to begin. Do I need prerequisite classes before I apply? I would like to stay in the New York/ New Jersey area or an online program if possible. Any information would be a great help. Thanks.

  1. just not that

    trying to be an RN by enrolling in an LPN program is about the LONGEST and most expensive way possible to be an RN. one is a tech program and the other is a college program. The two have very little in common (as far as credits and transferring)… the “bridge” program makes it possible, but it’s still more time and cost efficient to go straight to the RN program. Enroll at the local university that has a 4 year bachelors program. If there is not one locally, enroll in the local Community college and take all your “General Education” courses to transfer to a university (these are NOT nursing classes).

    You can take many Gen Ed classes (through your local state college or com college) online but you’ll need to do your Nursing classes in person. I would hope you couldn’t get a 4 year Bachelors degree by taking ALL online courses.

    The best way is to contact the school and speak to the school administrator directly. They are in this business and they can steer you in the right direction. Here is the list of accredited LPN-RN universities in your area. Look them up and visit them in person and/or call. It’s best to get the correct information now then later.
