Abstract

Currently, the licensed practical nurse (LPN) to associate degree in nursing (ASN) track is considered an extension of the traditional ASN program and the curriculum is the same for the traditional student as well as the LPN to ASN student. The curriculum covers a significant amount of information taught in LPN programs rather than concentrating on the acquisition of new knowledge and skills needed to prepare the LPN for the role transition to registered nurse (RN). Therefore, the goal of this proposed curriculum change is to bridge the gap between LPN and RN education by developing a curriculum designed to build on the knowledge and experience of the LPN. This curriculum design allows for further development of the LPN to ASN track to become a separate bridge program.

Abstract

The school of nursing proposes to recombine theory and clinical hours for NURS 4410 and NURS 3320. This does not result in any changes to the total number of credit hours for each course, nor does it change the content or outcomes of the course. This would also be consistent with combined theory and clinical courses in the associate degree nursing program and the capstone course in the BSN rogram (NURS 4440).
