  • Current licensed practical nurse (LPN) license in the United States.  Applicants with any disciplinary action on their LPN license will not be eligible for admission.
  • Reference letter from LPN Program Director.

To allow more flexibility in the program, LPNs in the BSN Completion program are allowed:

  • to take only 6 credit hours of religion (RELT 141 or RELT 110 or RELT 205 & RELT 305) instead of the 12 credit hours of religion listed under the General Education Requirements in the college bulletin.
  • to take only 2 credit hours of physical education activities instead of 4 credit hours  listed under the General Education Requirements in the college bulletin.
