LPN to ADN Transition Program

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 strives to function in alignment with the mission and vision of the college. In our efforts to explore equitable opportunities for all students, we are delaying the selective admission programs’ (NUR and RAD) application process for the fall 23 entry. We will begin the application process on July 1, 2022. We understand that some of you are aware of the previous process and ask that you use this time to focus on your academics. Please do not follow the past process. Our advisors and program heads are available if you need assistance.

Please contact the pre-health advisor for the Transition Program with any questions about the admission process.

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.
