Nursing (Advanced Placement LPN to RN, Associate's Degree)

Be a leader in this health care field and advance your LPN degree to become a Registered Nurse.

If you have a current LPN license, you can move into the second year of WNCC’s associate degree program. You must have completed your general education prerequisites in order to be eligible for admission into the second year of this two-year, registered nurse program.

Along with completing the application for admission, you will also need to submit a copy of your current LPN license and maintain your licensed status throughout the duration of the program.

Admission for advance placement is selective. You will need to meet the application requirements in order to be considered for our next fall class. You can request a program information packet, which includes information about the selection process and applicant requirements, from the Nursing Education office. We encourage you to make an appointment to discuss the details of advanced placement requirements. The number of advanced placement students accepted into the program will be determined by how much space is available.
