It provides useful tools to help them assess their academic skills, motivational exercises to complete, and resources to use throughout nursing school. Unit Two provides the information students need to bridge the gap between LPN and RN practice, presenting the knowledge and skills they need for the role transition to a RN. It demonstrates the difference between the two levels of practice, and it focuses on the critical thinking, clinical, and communication skills that LPN students need to successfully transition to the RN role.Unit One addresses the needs of returning LPN students and provides practical learning techniques with motivational exercises, tools, and resources to help them succeed in nursing school.Unit Two focuses on the needs of the student to effectively transition into the role of RN ― including critical thinking, communication, and many clinical nursing skills.For Your Information boxes are integrated throughout and provide important information and exercises to better understand the transition from LPN to the role of RN.
