The Transition Nursing program provides an opportunity for graduates of an approved LPN program to enter the ADN program as advanced standing students. Students are given credit for NUR 111, NUR 112, and NUR 114 if they have an active LPN license in North Carolina and successfully complete NUR 214 as part of the admission criteria. They then enroll in the third semester (Fall) of the Associate Degree Nursing program if space is available.
Transition LPN to ADN courses are taught in the spring semester.
