Licensed Practical Nurse to Associates of Science in Nursing (LPN-ASN)
The LPN Mobility program allows those who have obtained a certified, unrestricted LPN licensure to continue their nursing education by achieving an Associates of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree. After achieving the ASN, students eligible may sit for the NCLEX-RN exam in order to receive their RN licensure.
