This program is designed for Licensed Practical Nurses seeking an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree in order to take the NCLEX-RN. Waiver of any course requirements based on previous education does not relieve students in this advanced placement program from meeting the College's degree requirements of a minimum of 63 credit hours. If coursework is waived, students will be expected to complete courses in an appropriate area of study to meeting the minimum 63 credit hour degree requirement. LPN students are encouraged to non-nursing courses prior to acceptance in the advanced placement program.
This is a very competitive program. Meeting program requirements and applying to the nurse program do not guarantee admission. Enrollment in any nursing course requires acceptance into the nursing program. Applications must be submitted by January 31 of the year prior to anticipated fall semester entry. Non‐nursing courses must be completed the summer session before entry. Completion of all science courses with a "C" or better is required no more than five years prior to admission to the program.
