This program combines general education with nursing courses to prepare current licensed practical nurses for entry-level registered nurse practice.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination and apply to a Board of Nursing for licensure as registered nurses.
The Nursing LPN-RN track is a selective admissions program. Students must be accepted to the program before registering for any nursing (NUR) courses.
Rowan College requires all students accepted into the nursing program to complete a criminal history background check (CHBC), a mandatory requirement of clinical agencies to engage in patient care. Students denied the opportunity to participate in the clinical agency as a result of the CHBC will be dismissed from the nursing program.
