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
