NEW! LPN to RN Bridge Program
Louisiana Delta Community College extends new nursing program to community campuses
This has been a long-anticipated moment. The Winnsboro and Tallulah Campus of Louisiana Delta Community College will finally have the LPN to RN Bridge Program to offer its students. The campus has offered the Practical Nursing Program but had only hoped for more until now.
The LPN to RN Bridge allows for a person who is already an LPN to take an accelerated path to obtain their RN credentials. DeAnne Kiper, Winnsboro Campus Director, explains, "Our local healthcare providers have been asking for an RN program for quite some time. Since part of our mission is to help provide a trained workforce, we feel really good about adding this to our programming in Winnsboro. People in the community are absolutely thrilled that we are finally able to offer this option so close to home."
Classes will start in January on the Winnsboro Campus and August on the Tallulah Campus. Interested persons should contact the campus you would like to attend as soon as possible because there will likely be prerequisites that will need to be completed.
Winnsboro Campus: 2889 Highway 15 and the phone number is 318-367-6200.
Tallulah Campus: 132 Old Highway 65 South and phone number 318-474-5225.
