Situated near the Gulf Coast and right off Little Road in the Government Center, the New Port Richey college Campus in Florida will be offerring its first LPN to RN bridge program that will enable practical nurses to become a full pledge registered nurses in nine months.
“We are proud to offer current and future nursing professionals the respected and relevant degree options they need to either start or, in the case of our new Professional Nursing Mobility program, advance their nursing career”, Rasmussen College New Port Richey School of Nursing Dean Kelly McCullough said. “By offering a full-time Mobility program, we can help LPNs take their career to the next level and in less than a year, become an RN, which will allow them to not only advance professionally, but also increase their salary and expand their employment opportunities.”
The program will allow students to earn an Associate’s degree and sit for the NCLEX-RN exam, the national licensure examination for registered nurses. Upon successful completion of the exam, students will then become registered nurses.
