LPN-RN articulation application

  • If you are already a practical nurse with a current license, you may apply for our LPN-RN Articulation (Bridge) Program. Admission to the LPN-RN Articulation Program is on a space-available basis. In the event there are more applicants than spaces available, applicants will be ranked according to ACT and Nursing Program GPA criteria. The application deadline is Jan. 15, 2017.
Applications for admission are evaluated after the application deadlines have passed. An application is considered complete when all required documents are received.


All applicants who have met the requirements and have complete applications, will be scheduled for an interview with program director and a counselor. The interview process will involve review of academic preparation, related healthcare experience, skill development, and personal characteristics relevant to student success in the program.


Final selection will be based upon the following total ranking criteria of each applicant:

  • Kaplan scores - 60%
  • Interview - 40%

Upon completion of all interviews and ranking, applicants will be notified by certified mail if they have been accepted into the program. Those candidates not initially chosen for positions will be notified of their program status through regular mail.
