FRCC Campus in Longmont Offers Free Assessment Exam for LPNs Wanting to Become RNs

Licensed Practical Nurses interested in becoming Registered Nurses can take a free preadmission assessment exam for entry into the Front Range Community College LPN-ADN Bridge Program at the Boulder County Campus.

The four-hour assessment will be offered twice in March: noon to 4 p.m. Friday, March 14, 2014, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 15, 2014. The assessment will be given in Room 1772 of the Classroom Building at the campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont. Scores on the assessment exam are part of the criteria determining admission to the program.

The bridge program allows Licensed Practical Nurses to complete a transition course and enter the second year of the Associate of Applied Science Degree Nursing Program. This one-year program starts in May. Graduates of the LPN-ADN Bridge Program receive an Associate of Applied Science degree and are eligible to become Registered Nurses by taking the NCLEX-RN exam.

To be eligible for the bridge program, the student must hold have a current Colorado LPN license in good standing and show proof of completion of prerequisite courses or enrollment in those courses. The assessment request form is on the FRCC website (http://www.frontrange.edu/Academics/Academic-Departments/Boulder-County-Campus/Nursing/LPN-ADN-Preadmission-Assessment-Exam-PDF.aspx).
