  • PLEASE NOTE: Students enrolling at ACM for the first time must speak to an advisor - either in person, via phone, or by email- to register for courses
  • Students may be required to submit to random urine drug testing at clinical sites.
  • Students enrolled in the LPN-RN Online program are required to: 
    • conduct themselves according to an honor code
    • exhibit professional behavior at all times
    • communicate truthfully and effectively in English
  •  Each student seeking admission to the nursing major must read, sign, and submit a copy of the Eligibility for Application for Registered Nurse Licensure Legal Limitations Notification Form. This form will serve to notify Allegany College of Maryland nursing students that acceptance into the program does not guarantee successful completion, nor does graduation from a state accredited nursing program mean that the student is automatically eligible to take the state licensure examination. Any student who has been convicted of a crime that has a direct bearing on the person's ability to practice competently or who has committed an act that would constitute grounds for a disciplinary sanction will have the application for licensure reviewed on an individual basis by the respective state boards of nursing.



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.
