Transition Option: Individuals who are LPNs are eligible to enroll in an accelerated program leading to an AS degree in Nursing and subsequently be in a position to take the licensing examination. The program is designed to assist these professionals’ pursuit of an Associate degree in Nursing (ADN). This program is offered once a year starting in the summer term on the Dale Mabry campus. Nursing graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and, upon successful completion, receive the RN license. ACEN information and completion rates are available here.

Career Opportunities: The careers that are possible for graduate nurses are constantly expanding. Career opportunities are plentiful in hospitals, outpatient clinics, medical offices, and public health.

An additional Health Sciences application is required for this degree.  See the Admissions link below for more information.
