LVN-to-ADN Programs

LVN-to-ADN fast-track programs offer a licensed vocational nurse an educational path to become a professional registered nurse (RN).

Across the state, 50-plus associate degree nursing program locations offer transition/bridging courses and/or an accelerated academic track enabling a LVN to gain his/her associate degree and eligibility to sit for the NCLEX-RN licensing examination.  The transition/bridging course or courses (the number of courses are determined by each ADN school) focus on the RN role, RN authority to delegate selected nursing tasks, as well as the scope of an RN's responsibilities, competencies, and assessment skills.  Those skills are significantly expanded beyond the LVN role. Completion of the bridging course(s) may result in advanced placement credit(s).  The LVN-to-RN student then takes the core nursing courses required by that ADN program's degree plan.

For information about a school's admission requirements and degree plan, write, telephone, or visit the web site of an ADN school nearest you by clicking on that school name (see table below).

*DES - This symbol, an abbreviation for "Distance Education Site" or "Disstance Learning Initiative", means approved courses are offered at that location by a school of nursing located elsewhere. The courses may be presented via lecture, video-conferencing, telephone, on-line or other modes of communications.
