The University of Akron School of Nursing offers a career pathway to meet the needs of Licensed Practical Nurses who are interested in obtaining the baccalaureate degree in nursing. The sequence is designed for LPNs who completed a practical nursing curriculum, as well as LPNs with bachelor degrees in an area other than nursing. The pathway provides learning activities that build on prior knowledge and experience.
The LPN/BSN sequence is designed for nurses who wish to obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing.
The program itself, after completion of the prerequisites, is 2½ years in length, full-time. A part-time option is available.
All LPN students are admitted directly to the School of Nursing as undergraduate students. School of Nursing advisors will provide guidance to the student as to the prerequisite courses needed and a plan of study that will best meet the student's needs.
The college requires entering students to submit to a background check.
