LPN - RN Transition

Practical Nurses who hold a current, unrestricted, Virginia license as an LPN are welcome to apply to the RN program. The next RN program application that is open to transition applicants is Feb. 25- Mar. 1. Qualified applicants will be invited to take the Kaplan admission test which will test the following areas: Reading/Writing, Math, Vocabulary, and Science with an emphasis on Anatomy and Physiology.

Preparing to apply? Review the admission requirements here and schedule an appointment with your advisor (see the advising schedule on our Health Careers Advising page). 

Special Note:

  • There are new Pre-Application and Pre-requisite requirements. You must meet with a nursing advisor to ensure you meet the requirement prior to the application period.
  • Acceptance into the Transition (LPN-RN) program may be limited due to seat availability. There are no guaranteed class times for nursing lecture, lab or clinical placements.
