Put Your Mind to It

Once students pass the NCLEX-RN examination, they can begin seeking careers as registered nurses in a variety of health care settings or extend their education into advanced nursing programs or medical school.

Our program’s continued success relies entirely on our dedicated nursing faculty, who ensure excellence both in the classroom and clinical settings, and the smart, intuitive and committed students who value so highly, the role of the registered nurse and the importance of patient advocacy at every level. Nancy James, Associate Dean of Nursing and Allied Health

LVN to RN Program Information

LVN to RN Upward Mobility students join our Associate Degree Nursing program students in either the second or third semester to complete their pre-licensure education. The determination of semester entrance is dependent upon the results of placement exams that will be administered after candidate selection. Students completing the program are prepared to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
