This course bridges the theory gap from LVN education to the second year of ADN studies. This course includes medical-surgical, pediatrics, obstetrics, and basic nursing content. Students will also receive hands-on nursing training and will be taught the nursing process to prepare them to enter the fast-tracked (1 year) LVN to ADN pathway. This hybrid course is designed for the working professional, meeting only eight days during the 16-week semester, with the remaining content provided online and in an asynchronous format. LVN students are strongly encouraged to enroll in the bridge course.
*Class meets once every other week for a total of 8 in-person classes. All other content is asynchronous.
