Licensed Vocational Nurse Applicants (LVN-BS)

The licensed vocational nurse who wishes placement with advanced standing to earn a B.S. degree in nursing must:

  1. Currently hold an unencumbered license as a LVN/LPN.
  2. Have at least one year of work experience as a LVN/LPN.
  3. Fulfill the admission criteria and prerequisites for the B.S. program.
  4. LVNs may petition the Nursing Progression Committee to waive the admission criteria "within seven years" in the B.S. admission criteria.

General education, science, and cognate requirements are met through transfer of credit or completion of courses in residence. Credits for NURS 211 and NURS 315 (clinical portion) are awarded as credit by exam or by transfer of LVN course work. The LVN student may then enter the program in either fall or spring semester.
