LPN to BSN Option

The LPN to BSN option enables students who are licensed practical nurses (LPN) to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing as a full-time student. The curriculum is designed to expand students' previous nursing knowledge and skills through study and clinical practice. The curriculum meets the unique learning needs of LPNs and facilitates their transition into the undergraduate nursing clinical courses.

Students must meet the entrance requirements for the undergraduate nursing program and provide evidence of:

  1. Graduation from a State Board-approved LPN program. National accreditation (NLNAC) is preferred.
  2. Licensure to practice as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in Illinois. 

The College of Nursing, Health Sciences and Business reserves the right to amend policies, procedures and other program information as necessary. All changes will be communicated promptly.
