There are many links, notes, and resources to help other brave LPNs with the on line challenges of bridging to become a RN. This is an on-going record of the trials and triumphs of my journey to reach my goal to become a Registered Nurse via Excelsior College's Nursing Program. My journey continues as I further my education and career. I hope my notes and resources help other students on their journey.

Angled buckle fractures in the proximal and distal radius. (A) Note the angled buckle fracture in the proximal radius (arrows). (B) Normal side for comparison; the cortex is smooth. (C) A similar angled buckle fracture (arrows) in the distal radius. (D) Normal side for comparison; the cortex is smooth.
