The LPN/ADN Transition Option is for Licensed Practical Nurses who are licensed in the state of Ohio and are interested in becoming a registered nurse. This program may be completed in four semesters after prerequisites are completed. After completing the LPN/ADN Transition Program, students will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing. The NUR courses are sequential and require four consecutive semesters to complete. Continuation in and graduation from the nursing program is contingent upon the student earning a grade of at least "C" in nursing and anatomy and physiology and microbiology courses.
The first transition course, NUR 190S is online so students will need NET 100S or XLN 100S to meet the college-wide online preparedness requirement. NUR 210S is web-flex with some classroom and laboratory requirements. NUR 265S and NUR 275S are held in classrooms and laboratories, while area hospitals, community centers, and nursing homes provide clinical training sites.
