The laddered Associate Degree Nursing Program consists of Level I Practical Nursing Program and Level II Registered Nurse Program (Level I students and current LPNs). Upon successful completion of Level I, a Practical Nursing Certificate is awarded. This certificate qualifies the graduate to sit for the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX) in Nursing at the RN level. When the graduate successfully passes the examination, the nursing graduate will be licensed as a Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) by the State Board of Nursing. There are no electives in the program. See the prerequisites for admission to Level I.
