Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN)


The ASN Program at LMU prepares graduates to be safe and effective caregivers who are able to function successfully in entry level RN positions after passing their NCLEX-RN State Board Exam. In a recent graduating class, over 96% of LMU's ASN graduates passed their NCLEX-RN examination. After receiving their RN license, LMU graduates are eligible to work in any setting that hires registered nurses. Additionally, ASN degree recipients have the option of pursuing advanced degree opportunities.
