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!

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.
