Take Your LPN to an RN as a Hybrid Student
Hybrid courses are a blending of the traditional face-to-face courses with an online component. In this format, you will complete a portion of the course online and then meet on campus as outlined in the class schedule. Hybrid courses must meet a minimum of 25% of the course face-to-face.

The LPN-to-RN Hybrid option is designed to assist qualified Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) with the transition to RN practice via either a weekday hybrid or an evening/weekend hybrid (face to face and distance) learning environment.
After successfully completing the summer transition course, NUR 1116, the LPN student accepted into the day or evening/weekend hybrid option is awarded fourteen (14) semester hours of credit for previous nursing education. Thereafter, the student will by-pass the first year courses required of ADN graduates and enter semester 3 (corresponding day or evening/weekend) of the ADN program. Beginning with NUR 1116, and thru the terminal ADN courses, NUR 2434 and NUR 2422, course and clinical works (evening/weekend option only) will include the EMS/Paramedic-to-RN students, and the Respiratory Therapist-to-RN students. Credit for these courses plus the 14 credit hours for previous education equal the sixty-six (66) semester hours to be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
