The RN-BSN bridge course: transitioning the re-entry learner.
J Contin Educ Nurs. 2001 Nov-Dec; 32(6):250-3.JC

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Although most RN-to-BSN programs offer bridge courses, little can be found in the literature about common course objectives, content, or outcomes.

METHOD

This article details course objectives, course content, course implementation, and preliminary outcomes of a primarily distance learning RN-to-BSN bridge course at a northern California university.

RESULTS

Preliminary outcome assessments suggested greater than expected increases in role and campus socialization, as well as computer literacy, as a result of RN-to-BSN bridge course implementation.

CONCLUSION

The RN-to-BSN bridge course can successfully be used to transition the re-entry student and may be the link allowing RN-to-BSN students to effectively face the concurrent challenges of role socialization and computer literacy while mastering course content and course objectives.
