RN Transition Program (LVN to RN)

2019 Best Ranked Nursing Programs, RNCareers.org

The Associate of Applied Science RN (LVN-RN) Transition Program was developed in 1989 to meet the unique learning needs of the experienced LVN/LPN, providing these individuals with both career and educational mobility. The RN Transition Program is a one-year, competency-based program which fosters the development of critical thinking skills in the clinical environment. Our philosophy holds that the experienced Licensed Vocational Nurse has a basic level of nursing knowledge upon which to build and has learning needs different from those of generic students.

Applications for the RN Transition Program will open beginning July 1st through September 15th.  Check back here for how to apply on July 1st.

If you are applying for the January 2022 class, there will be in-person Information Sessions on July 20, August 10, and August 30 at 11:00am in the Stark Nursing Classroom Building, Room 106, for those with questions.

NURSING FRAMEWORKS UPDATE

PSYC 1200 Nursing Frameworks is not required for the upcoming application period. However, if students have completed the course within the last three years prior to applying to the RN program, they will receive priority points added to their Admission Rating Scale. Priority points are based on grade earned multiplied by the number of credit hours for the course. Priority points would be assigned as follows:

  • grade of  A will receive 8 priority points,
  • grade of B will receive 6 priority points, and
  • grade of C will receive 4 priority points.

Students who have not taken the course or whose course is over three years old may still apply, but will not receive those points.
