This associate in applied science degree program prepares students for employment opportunities as nurses. This program is designed to provide the credits necessary for eligibility to take the nursing licensure examination, and transferability for a bachelor’s degree in nursing.

The licensed practical nurse (LPN) who wishes to become a registered nurse is considered an advanced standing student. An advanced standing student must hold a current unencumbered LPN license and must apply to the program. Those with a current LPN license must meet the prerequisite general education and nursing course requirements. For more information, LPNs are encouraged to meet with a counselor.
