BRIDGE 2020: LPN to ADN Bridge Program

Are you a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)? Did you know you could become an RN in less than a year?

BCC’s LPN to Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) Bridge prepares students to become Registered Nurses (RN). As an LPN, you can start that process this fall at BCC by taking the prerequisite courses to meet the ADN program requirements to enter the BRIDGE class of Fall 2020.

As an LPN-ADN BRIDGE student, you can challenge the first two nursing courses through a standardized theoretical test and receive 17 credits for NUR-101 and NUR-102 upon admission. By doing this you can join the second year of the ADN program in Fall 2020, and if all goes well, you could be a Registered Nurse by the summer of 2021.
