Wilson College LPN-BSN Program
Licensed Practical Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (LPN to BSN)
Wilson College’s LPN to BSN program is a CNEA (from the National League of Nursing) accredited accelerated option for those who hold a valid LPN license in their state. Classes are mostly on-line except for the last three semesters. There are a total of six clinical courses and clinical cohorts begin in the summer semesters. The clinical experiences in last three semesters, are offered in person, and for distance students, via a low residency program* where 80 hours of combined hospital and simulation clinical experiences are necessary. In the first three clinical courses, LPNs attend class one evening per week in an online synchronous format. The final three clinical courses include online lectures and hospital clinical experiences at Wilson affiliated hospitals. In addition to the six clinical courses, additional science and liberal study requirements must be met for the BSN degree
Students should be prepared for the commitment and study requirements that will come with the LPN-BSN Program. In lieu of clinical hours, skills testing must be completed on campus during the last three clinical courses.
*Students who are more than two hours away from campus can choose a low residency option for the last three semesters where they can come to campus for 7-10 days to complete clinical experiences.
LPNs seeking admission into the LPN accelerated option must meet admission requirements for the nursing program which consist of:
- An official high school transcript or GED.
- An official transcript from the school that conferred the LPN license.
- All official College transcripts from all schools attended during or after high school.
- TEAS test results (must be less than 4 years old and a score of 65 or higher is favorable)
- Your current, active LPN nursing License (number required for verification)
