Program Description

Our LPN to ADN Transition Program, which is designed for the current LPN to obtain licensure as a Registered Nurse, admits students each Summer.  Students applying to the Transition Program must have 6 months experience as a LPN and must pass a required entrance exam for admission.

The LPN to ADN Transition program is a selective admission program and therefore has it’s own admission process in addition to the college application.  Students are advised to apply early!

Admissions Procedure

The School of Health Sciences (SHS) strives to provide admission processes that are fair and equitable for all students who have the desire to become healthcare professionals. Additionally, we have an obligation to set our students up for programmatic success and board passage.

The new SHS admission processes for the nursing programs will select students based on the completion of the listed minimum requirements and on a first completion basis. If one of the nursing programs is your desired program of study it is important that you begin the process NOW.

We recognize that no one process is perfect; however, we will continue to monitor our processes to improve and to ensure equitable opportunities for all applicants. Please read the admission requirements very carefully and follow the instructions as directed.

Please see the Admission Requirements tab below for more information.

Important: Health insurance is required for all students in a nursing program.  It is recommended that students obtain health insurance prior to acceptance into the program as Open Enrollment dates do not correlate with admission dates.  Students who do not have insurance by the start of the program will be unable to remain enrolled in the program.  Please see the Resources tab for more information.
