How does an LPN become an RN?

An LPN can become an RN by completing an LPN to RN Bridge Program. Many schools offer them and some are available online, however they will require completion of hands on clinicals. They take approximately a year to complete full time.

There are different programs depending if you want to complete an Associate’s Degree or a Bachelor’s Degree.

The experience as an LPN can make the RN program less difficult. It is important to make sure the program you chose accepts your LPN credits.
