LPN Bridging Option

This option is available for interested applicants who are currently licensed by the College of Licenced Practical Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador. A copy of the current LPN license is required.

This program is offered at the Centre for Nursing Studies in St. John's.


Admission requirements

In addition to the qualifications noted above, you must meet pre-admission requirements for the four-year option, including completion of the following high school courses (or their equivalents):

  • Biology 2201 and 3201
  • Chemistry 3202
  • Math 3200 or 3201

Students are conditionally accepted to the LPN bridging option and must successfully complete a bridging semester during the spring semester prior to beginning the program. Successful students will then bridge into Year 2 of the bachelor of nursing (collaborative) program at the Centre for Nursing Studies.

To apply for admission into the LPN bridging option, indicate bachelor of nursing (collaborative) in the appropriate place on the undergraduate application for admission and select the LPN bridging option from the drop-down menu.
