Earn your BSN degree and become a Registered Nurse

When considering advancement of your career from LPN to RN, many nursing colleges offer bridge programs. They include online education, traditional classes or the combination of both. As the need for qualified nurses is rising nationwide, the curriculum and the financial aid system are being adjusted to meet the need. The programs vary greatly from state to state. Some institutions offer accelerated programs, but typical transitional curriculum of the LPN to RN takes two years to complete. The clinical component is always mandatory, and it must be accomplished in order to obtain your degree.

The state of North Dakota is presently trying to attract more potential candidates to complete any of the bridge programs offered state wide. The Center for Rural Health reports that 25 percent of presently employed RNs plan on retiring within the next five years. As the nursing population is aging, it opens more opportunities for younger generation within the field of healthcare. The nursing institutions are limited in North Dakota as the state has been faced with the decline in interest of this vocation within the past several years. Due to the growing need, the bridge programs are presently reviewed and adjusted accordingly in order to ease the transition from LPN to RN.

The educational facilities in North Dakota, which provide nursing programs, are small in size. However, that creates perfect opportunity for high level of education and personal approach to each student. Small classes allow the educators to concentrate their efforts on every participating individual. This method ensures successful completion of the program and high average grades. LPNs with recent clinical experience are allowed to waive up to eight credits upon admission to any of the bridge programs. Theoretical component can be almost fully completed online, with only minimal class attendance required. The orientation, presentations as well as oral exams will require mandatory presence at the campus. The courses generally include professional development, microbiology and alterations in health. The clinical time can be typically completed within the participant’s community at convenient times.

The occupation of RN is demanding but also extremely rewarding. This particular field offers endless opportunities for growth and advancement. Although many nurses choose to remain within clinical settings, such as hospitals and long-term care facilities, many others choose the venue of education, research or medical sales. American nurses are also highly regarded as professionals within the international workforce. The individuals who enjoy traveling and learning new cultures will find plenty of opportunities around the globe to fulfill their occupational aspirations including voluntary possibilities for personal enrichment.
