The School of Nursing offers the LPN-ASN program track. Applications are being accepted for fall 2020.
Upon graduation, the LPN receives the Associate of Science Degree in Nursing and is eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
LPNs who are new LPN graduates, and/or have limited acute care clinical experience, and/or do not have most of the required support courses completed should consider matriculation into the generic ASN program.
This program track is best suited for experienced LPNs who have completed most of the support courses for nursing. The nursing courses are taught through Big Blue Button and Blackboard Learn allowing synchronous on-line classes and live instructor-student interaction without having to drive to campus. Clinical experiences are conducted two days each month. Students for this program must possess basic computer skills and have computer access. Class size is limited to 32 students per year. The program starts each fall. Admission requirements are the same as for the traditional ASN program track.
