Earn your BSN degree and become a Registered Nurse

LPN’s in Washington have several options for advancement in their medical careers. Many of the colleges and universities have bridge programs that allow the LPN to become a registered nurse, with either a bachelor’s or an associate’s degree. The transition from LPN to RN takes approximately a year. Earning a bachelor’s degree or a specialty certification could take considerably longer. LPNs and RNs in Washington have to have 45 hours of continuing education credits every 3 years to keep their knowledge up to date. To keep their license current, they also have a minimum of 531 hours of clinical practice. The state, colleges and hospitals work together to encourage nurses to improve their skills.

With the current job projections in nursing growing and other jobs not faring so well, the number of people entering the nursing profession is increasing. Some students are entering nursing programs right out of high school. Other students are focusing on a career change, either due to a lack of jobs in their former professions, burn out or just a chance to join a profession with a tradition of good pay and benefits. This increases the competition for nursing programs.

Many of the programs require that the applicant pass classes in anatomy, chemistry and algebra before being considered. The LPN has the advantage of having classes and experience in the nursing field. To be a good nurse requires dedication, compassion and the ability to learn new procedures. To advance in the medical field, they need classes that allow them to communicate, supervise and make good decisions. There is always something new to learn in nursing.

Most of the colleges that have CNA, LPN and RN programs have nursing advisers that can help map out a career plan and the education required to accomplish it. The projections indicate that the need for nurses at all levels will continue to increase. The state of Washington is striving to make sure that quality nurses fill that need. The state also has provisions for accepting LPNs who were licensed in other states into their program.

The people who are most satisfied in their professions are the ones with their hands on the pulse of the nation. In nursing, you can take that literally.
