The Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)/Paramedic Pathway (Bridge) to Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) enables the LPN and Paramedic to complete an accelerated 3-semester curriculum leading to an Associate of Science in Nursing degree. The first semester requires one-day-per-week on campus, then the remaining two semesters are online for didactic/theory with clinical/practicum rotations. This pathway recognizes these health care practitioners already have a knowledge base that will allow them to succeed in an RN program at a faster pace.

The pathway requires students to complete the core coursework required for the ASN program with pre-requisites outlined in the Program of Study. This pace is challenging but very appealing to working health professionals. Graduates of the pathway are eligible to take the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). This pathway (bridge) dovetails into the online RN to BSN completion program with no loss of credit.
