This program is designed for career mobility
for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to transition into the
role of the Registered Nurse (RN). Graduates are prepared to
take both the Practical Nurse Licensure Exam (NCLEX-PN®)
and the Registered Nurse Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN®).
Under the Kansas Statewide Nursing Articulation Plan, LCC
nursing graduates may also continue studies at colleges or
universities in Kansas that offer bachelor's degrees in nursing.
Students interested in the Nursing Program
can be admitted to the College on the same basis as other
students, but admission to the College does not ensure admission
into the Nursing Program. Selection and acceptance into the Nursing Program is
based on the criteria established by the department.
