Applicants must hold a current U.S. LPN unencumbered license to apply for admission to the LPN to BSN Basic Track.
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN or LVN), regardless of nursing experience or completion of lower general education core requirements, must complete (or be enrolled in) the nursing support courses prior to submission of an application.
The LCSC LPN to BSN Track is designed for the Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN or LVN) who graduated from an academic institution with an A.A.S. degree. Credit may be awarded for up to 17 credits of LPN coursework.
Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN or LVN) who graduated from a technical or non-academic program will be evaluated on an individual basis for entry into the LPN to BSN Basic Track. Course challenge exams may be required. The BSN Basic Track Coordinator will create an individualized plan after an evaluation of transcripts/ course syllabi and an interview with the candidate.
A student who has earned a degree from a U.S. post-secondary institution accredited by an agency which is recognized by the Idaho State Board of Education will normally have met the LCSC lower division general education core requirements. Applicable degrees include:
LPNs admitted to the LPN to BSN Basic Track must register for all of the courses listed within each semester of the curriculum plan. The LPN to BSN Track has full time and “part-time" options. See LPN-BSN Track Options
LPN’s planning to apply to the LPN to BSN Basic Track may register for three courses prior to acceptance into the track (i.e., students enrolled in the final semester of an LPN program or those who have graduated and are awaiting licensure). Registration for these courses does not guarantee acceptance into the program track. All prerequisite coursework must be completed before enrolling in any NU (nursing) course.
