The LPN-RN Track program is designed​ for students who wish to enter the healthcare profession as a Registered Nurse (RN). The program combines general education with nursing courses to prepare current licensed practical nurses (LPN) for entry-level Registered Nursing (RN) practice.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX-RN) and apply to a Board of Nursing for licensure as registered nurses.

Students who apply to the LPN-RN Track program must hold a current PN license in good standing and have graduated from an accredited PN program.
