When looking for advancing your education from LPN to RN many bridge programs are currently available. Some universities offer online courses, but most require class room attendance to ensure proper understating and completion of the curriculum. Full-time courses typically last one year, whereas part-time students are able to extend their education up to two years. Hybrid courses are also available typically for part-time individuals, who hold regular jobs and can only attend classes during the evening or weekend hours. Affiliation programs are also accessible and can be implemented to smooth the transition between LPN to RN.

Typical bridge program starts at an associate degree level. It is important to look for the course with an agenda which will be able to encompass your current skills with education goals you are aiming at.

Professional nursing practice as well as communication skills and leadership development will also become part of the curriculum. As most bridge courses require completing clinical practice, you will be mandated to attend all required classes. When taking this type of course online, you may be obligated to complete the clinical component on your own.
