LPN-RN Accelerated Bridge

If you are a licensed practical nurse seeking to continue your education the LPN-RN bridge is for you! This option is transitioning to a hybrid design (online and in person) and can be completed in 12 consecutive months. Laboratory and clinical experiences will occur on selected evenings and/or weekends, allowing you to meet responsibilities (work and family) and continue your education. The first cohort of the new hybrid program will begin in fall 2023!

COMING SOON! Website design with details are in progress. For questions and information please contact Dr. Vanessa Lyons, vanessa.lyons@kctcs.edu. 


To receive advanced standing and the accelerated nature of the LPN-to-RN Bridge program, LPN students must successfully complete the Nursing Accelerated Challenge Exam (NACE) Foundations of Nursing exam.
