Earn your BSN degree and become a Registered Nurse

Making the transition from Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Registered Nurse (RN) has become easier in New Hampshire through the incentive and fast track programs offered by most nursing schools. The programs allow anyone with a valid LPN license to enter an Associate degree in nursing program in the second year, space permitting and earn a degree in one year instead of two.

The programs are called bridge or articulation programs or the LPN to RN with an Advancement option. The programs are designed to allow students to claim credit hours for course work taken while in an LPN program and for actual work experience. The programs offer classroom and clinical training sessions and can be undertaken on a part time or full time basis with an evening or weekend option.

Most nursing schools require LPN to RN candidates to complete the necessary studies within a certain time frame, usually four years. Studies not completed within the prescribed time frame will be null and void, and the student will have to reapply to the program and begin again. Students will only be readmitted to the program once.

LPN to RN programs also requires the student to take and successfully pass the NLN Acceleration Challenge Exam. Admission to nursing programs at all schools is highly competitive, and selection is based on grades received for high school level prerequisite studies and applicable college studies undertaken when studying to be an LPN. Students must also include references from former instructors and employers with their application.

Before students can participate in clinical training, they will be required to undergo a criminal background check and alcohol and drug screening. The student will also be responsible for all cost related to such checks and screenings.

High school prerequisites include chemistry and biology with the associated laboratory sessions and college prep algebra with a grade of C or better. Applicants will also be required to take and pass the National League for Nursing Acceleration Challenge exam (NLNAC) with a score of 70 or better. The results of the test will award the student up to 6 credit hours of study.

The LPN to RN programs are geared to training the student in nurse management practices as well as include class work in general studies, science and liberal arts. The program is designed to prepare the student to take and pass the NCLEX-RN examination and elevate the LPN to RN.

Upon successful completion of the program, students must apply to the New Hampshire Board of Nursing to take the NCLEX-RN, administered by PearsonVUE. There is an application fee payable to the New Hampshire Board of Nursing and an examination fee payable to PearsonVUE.
