The A.S.N. Bridge Program at Santa Fe College is designed to facilitate career mobility for the licensed practical nurse and/or licensed paramedic. The student entering this program must meet specific admission criteria. The A.S.N. Bridge Program is a yearlong accelerated program that builds on skills covered in a practical nursing program and/or paramedic program. Paramedic Bridge students must complete Introduction to Nursing, NUR1006C, (spring A term) prior to NUR2002C, Nursing Process 1A (spring B term) and NUR2003C, Nursing Process 1B (summer A term). Competency in selected basic nursing skills must be demonstrated within the first three weeks of NUR2002C in order to continue in the A.S.N. Bridge Program. There is also a requirement to pass a medication calculation test successfully by the end of the Bridge Nursing Process 1 in order to progress to Bridge Nursing Process 2. This distinctive program is available to all licensed practical nurses and/or licensed paramedics who meet the entrance criteria. This course is offered once a year, beginning in spring B term. PN academic and licensed work experience (10 credit hours) or paramedic academic and licensed work experience (8 credit hours) will be awarded after successful completion of the Bridge sequence. Students should note that clinical training could be any day, Monday through Sunday, at varying hours.
