Our courses are organized around a clearly defined conceptual framework that combines general education and nursing education. Nursing courses correlate classroom and clinical instruction in community agencies.
These core components are introduced, developed, and built upon through the curriculum:
There are two options for a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to advance to the associate nursing degree program. A LPN may apply for admittance into the traditional day program upon receiving credit for the first nursing course, NSG 101 Nursing Practice I and would be allowed to start with Semester III, NSG 210 Medical Surgical Nursing I. Another option is the admittance into the non-traditional LPN to ADN Bridge Program which allows for additional articulation credit given upon completion of NSG 197 Transition to ADN course allowing the student to enter the final year of the ADN program. There may be some courses within the LPN to ADN Bridge Program which are offered in a non-traditional, evening/weekend/online format. Either program will prepare a LPN to graduate with the Associate in Applied Science in Nursing Degree and be eligible to apply to the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
LPN to ADN Bridge Program pre-requisites include: BIO 137, BIO 139, PY 110, PSY 223, MT 110, ENG 101, COM 181 or 252, Computer Literacy (CIS 100) and an unrestricted, current LPN license.
Check the program brochure for more information about the LPN to ADN bridge program.
