LPN to RN Bridge

When accepted into the associate of applied science in the nursing program, LPNs with a current, unencumbered TN license, may waive out of Fundamentals of Nursing (NRSG 1710) upon successful completion of assigned Prior Learning Assessments (PLAs). The LPN will then receive seven credit hours for NRSG 1710.

PLAs will be completed by the LPN during the semester before starting the program. The PLA activities include completing a care plan, attending a one-day skills and dosage calculation review, lab check-offs, a dosage calculation exam, and fundamentals review packet.
