Overall GPA is not a criterion for admission. Admission is partially dependent on the grades earned in the required prerequisite courses (ENGL, Anatomy). LPN candidates must have a 2.0 GPA in all their core LPN courses.
LPN students are admitted with 5 credits of advanced standing only in the spring semester, and progress through the program four semesters for December graduation.
LPN students may waive their 5 credits of advanced standing, and apply to begin the program in fall semester. Students waiving the 5 credits of advanced standing should complete the regular Nursing application, not the advanced standing LPN to RN application. They will progress through the program 4 semesters for May graduation.
