Central Arizona College is now accepting applications for the new Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Registered Nurse (RN) Bridge Program. This program is designed for current Arizona LPNs looking to earn their Associate of Applied Science (AAS)-Nursing degree.

In just 2.5 semesters, students will receive the necessary education to earn an AAS-Nursing degree and sit for the Arizona Board of Nursing, NCLEX RN exam to become a registered nurse. The course sequence begins for new students each fall and spring semester with a summer course preceding.

Acceptance into CAC’s LPN to RN Bridge program is highly competitive with class space being limited.

Those interested in additional information or an application to the program must attend a Nursing Information Session where they will obtain an application. Information sessions are held monthly during the academic year.
