    The purpose of the Nurse Education, Practice, Quality, and Retention-Pathway to Registered Nurse Program (NEPQR-PRNP), is to create a pathway from academic training to clinical practice. The pathway from academic training to clinical practice should be through the creation and implementation of Licensed Practical Nurse/Licensed Vocational Nurse (LPN/LVN) to Registered Nurse (RN) Bridge Programs and the employment of Clinical Nurse Faculty.

    The objectives of this program are to:

    • Recruit LPN/LVN-RN undergraduate nursing students committed to practicing in medically underserved communities.
    • Provide nursing students with longitudinal interprofessional team-based, clinical, and didactic training experiences along the practice continuum in community-based settings located in rural or underserved areas.
    • Prepare program participants for the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX- RN).
    • Provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and support(s) needed to successfully matriculate through innovative LPN/LVN-to-RN career ladder training programs

    History of Funding

    None is available.

    Additional Information

    Funding must be used for:

    • Program Development: Funds can be used to develop and implement or enhance an accredited LPN/LVN-to-RN Bridge program targeting the needs of LPNs/LVNs.
    • Direct Support for LPN/LVN to RN students: Funds can be used to assist in student success such as stipends, tuition, and other social supports (e.g., transportation and childcare assistance). LPNs/LVNs are nursing professionals and when entering a degree program there may be barriers in place that keep these students from being successful.
    • Curriculum and Partnership Development: Funds can be used to develop curriculum and build/enhance/maintain partnerships between clinical and educational institutions. Challenges exist for students as they move from one educational institution to another (e.g., academic credits not transferring from 2- year to 4-year institutions) and working experiences are not always counted as credit toward their degree program. Strong partnerships are encouraged between clinical training sites and academic institutions including technical/vocational schools and community colleges to help to mitigate these challenges.
    • Preceptor/Faculty: Funds can be used to recruit, retain, and develop clinical and didactic faculty and clinical preceptors. Faculty and preceptors are needed to train new students in the bridge program being created.
