New Jersey LPN to RN Bridge Program FAQs

 

PROGRAM AND SCHEDULE

Q. What type of program is the Professional Nursing program?

The Professional Nursing program educates and prepares students for entry level registered nursing positions in a variety of health care settings.

Q. What is the LPN to RN Bridge Track of the Professional Nursing program?

The LPN to RN Bridge track provides Practical Nurses with the opportunity to continue their education to become a registered nurse. Credit is given in the program for prior educational learning as a practical nursing student.

Q. What type of degree is offered?

Students earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing upon successful completion of the program.

Q. What Grade Point Average Must I Maintain?

To successfully complete a course students are required to maintain a 75% or higher grade point average in the course. In addition, students are required to pass the practicum portion of each course and successfully complete progression exams. Students who fail to meet these standards are subject to academic probation or dismissal from the Professional Nursing program. Jersey College does allow students to repeat a limited number of failed courses, subject to certain conditions. Additional information regarding repeating a course is available in our Academic Catalog.

Q. Does Jersey College utilize progression exams, including a Comprehensive Assessment exam?

To measure achievement of course and program objectives and outcomes, Jersey College utilizes progression testing. The progression testing incorporates third-party and internal based assessments and examinations. These assessments and examinations require students to “test out” of each level of their program to progress to the next term and then pass a comprehensive assessment (aka comprehensive exam, comprehensive predictor, comprehensive evaluation, etc.) to graduate. Students must successfully complete the comprehensive assessment in order to graduate and have their names submitted to the licensing boards. Failure to successfully complete this process will result in termination from the Professional Nursing program.
