NFCC LPN-RN Bridge program offers accelerated track for LPNs to complete Associate Degree in Nursing

Summer Term 2015 Deadline to apply is March 1 | Classes begin May 11

MADISON, FL – North Florida Community College’s Allied Health Department is accepting student applications for its LPN to RN Bridge program. The program is a one-year/three-term accelerated bridge program leading to an Associate Degree in Nursing (A.D.N.) for individuals holding a current certificate and licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse.

Classes are set to begin May 11 (Summer Term 2015); deadline to apply is March 1. According to NFCC Allied Health Advisor Debbie Bass, potential students should contact NFCC now to begin the application process for summer classes or to prepare to enter the program at a later date. Those interested in applying or seeking more information should contact Debbie Bass in the NFCC Career and Technical Education Center (Bldg. 13) at (850) 973-1662 or bassd@nfcc.edu.

Potential students looking to begin Summer 2015 must already hold a current degree and licensure as an LPN and have completed prerequisite coursework by the end of NFCC’s Spring Term 2015. Prerequisites courses include Freshman English I, Anatomy & Physiology I, Anatomy & Physiology II, Statistics, Microbiology, General Psychology, a Humanities, Philosophy or Religion course, and approved IV Therapy Course; a total of 24 credit hours.

Successful completion of the LPN to RN Bridge program prepares graduates to take the National Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Achievement of a passing score on this exam and licensure by the Florida State Board of Nursing enables the graduate to seek employment as a Registered Nurse in the state of Florida.
