LPN to Nursing AAS Bridge Program

The Virginia Western Community College Nursing Program's advance placement or "Bridge" program, is designed to grant advanced placement to LPNs who have been admitted to the Virginia Western Community College Associate of Applied Science Nursing Degree program and meet pre-requisite requirements.

Students who meet the eligibility requirements for the advanced placement will take "Bridge" courses in the summer term and then be eligible to take the sophomore level courses and graduate within one (1) academic year with an AAS Degree in Nursing.

This program is designed to recognize the common competencies of nurses and to bridge the difference between LPN and RN knowledge base and to allow these students to finish the AAS program within a two and one-half semester period.
