RN to BSN Articulation Agreements

Lamar State College Orange is part of the Consortium for Advancing Baccalaureate Nursing Education in Texas (CABNET) to promote Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN). The goal of APIN is to promote seamless academic progression in order to increase the number of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020. The CABNET agreements are designed to increase transparency while decreasing duplication in the required coursework for Associate Degree RNs who are continuing in a RN to BSN program. To help with students with academic planning, we have developed an Advising Worksheet which lets students know which courses they will need for the BSN and which universities will accept which plan. Currently Lamar State College Orange has articulations with five universities. See the attached worksheet for the specific courses and options.
