**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. The college is not regulated in Texas under Chapter 132 of the Texas Education Code. 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.
