The Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse (LPN to RN) Transition Track is available to currently licensed LPNs only. This is a four-semester track with extensive pre-requisite work required. Students take two transitional classes in the fall semester and enter the Traditional Registered Nurse Track during the second semester of the first year of the nursing program. Students graduate at the end of the second spring semester.
