All Erudite nursing programs have basic eligibility requirements–among which are minimum, current work experience as a nurse or other medical professional in the Healthcare field. The Qualification Guidelines can be found here:?https://www.eruditenursing.education/admissions/qualification-guidelines/
For those unable to meet the specified Qualification Guidelines, you may still be eligible to bridge into the LPN program by completing an approved Allied Healthcare course designed specifically for the purpose of bridging into the 5-week LPN program with Erudite. The following courses offered through Medical Career Specialists are approved for this purpose, may be used to bridge into the LPN program (for qualifying individuals):
- Clinical Medical Assistant/CMA (5 days to 5 weeks)
- Patient Care Technician/PCT (5 days to 5 weeks)
- Surgical Technician/Surg. Tech (5 days to 5 weeks)
Each of the above bridge programs is five (5) weeks duration, but certain students may be eligible to apply for certification examination in as few as five (5) days after program enrollment–if all coursework has been completed within that time frame.
In addition, CNAs (Certified Nurse Assistants), HHAs (Home Health Aides), and other current medical professionals may be eligible to complete the above bridge programs–CMA, PCT, or Surg. Tech–but will need to verify that they meet the bridge program eligibility requirements. For more information and to apply for the CMA, PCT, or Surg. Tech to LPN bridge programs, go here:?https://www.medicalcareerspecialists.com/bridge-into-nursing/
Completing one of the approved courses through Medical Career Specialists alleviates the requirement that the CMA, PCT, or Surg. Tech student have four (4) years work experience before applying to the 5-week LPN program with Erudite. However, no other similar Allied Health Programs may be used in this way.
Graduates of the above Medical Career Specialists courses designed to bridge into the 5-week LPN are eligible for immediate application to the 5-week LPN program with Erudite–once the student has earned their national certification and licensure with Medical Career Specialists.?For more information and to apply for the CMA, PCT, or Surg.
