LPN to BSN in Nursing

Advance Your Education.

The LPN-BSN Advance is an advanced placement option offered by the School of Nursing at Oklahoma Wesleyan University. The LPN-BSN Advance student will receive 20 credits of advanced standing in nursing and have the option to take NURS 3823 – Nursing Care of the Childbearing Family, and NURS 3923 – Nursing Care of the Childrearing Family for 6 additional hours of credit. To have advanced standing credit applied to his/her transcript, the LPN-BSN Advance student must take NURS 3143 – Nursing Advance, complete all junior-level general education courses with a “C” or higher, and complete all junior-level nursing core courses with a “C+” or higher.

Advanced placement is designed to advance the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) educationally and professionally, as well as to prepare him/her to take the NCLEX-RN. Two pathways of entry are planned. The LPN-BSN Advance student is subject to the same progression policies as those required of the traditional Bachelor Science in Nursing (BSN).
