>>NOTE<< STATE BOARD REQUIREMENTS:
Currently, the L.P.N. /L.V.N. to RN Online option is recognized or approved by the individual State Board of Nursing and/or Higher Education Commission in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Approval from other states is pending.
RN licensure rules vary from state to state and are subject to change based on state-specific Nurse Practice Act requirements. Due to the unique model of non-traditional nursing degree programs like the online LPN-RN program, some states have additional requirements for licensure of nursing graduates.
Prospective students with specific questions about eligibility to practice as a registered nurse in a particular state, other than Maryland or Pennsylvania, should direct their questions to the relevant state Board of Nursing where they reside or plan to apply for licensure.
Throughout the course of the LPN-RN Online track nursing program students are placed in various approved clinical sites. Students complete clinical objectives under the direct supervision of an approved nursing clinical preceptor and overseen by a course faculty member. Students complete over 700 hours of clinical learning experiences during the course of the online program.
