LPN to BSN Option


The LPN/BSN option offers licensed practical nurses (LPN) the opportunity to earn a bachelor of science in nursing in a reduced time frame and to qualify for the national council licensure examination for registered nursing (NCLEX-RN). Starting in 1991, the BSN/LPN option is the first such educational opportunity in Illinois for LPNs to earn their BSN in a reduced time frame. It is integrated within the undergraduate nursing curriculum.

Please check out the admission requirements for full details about what is necessary to apply for the LPN/BSN If you are transferring into nursing, please see the transfer admission requirements for the BSN.

For more information, please review the program requirements and course descriptions in the SXU Academic Catalog.
