L.P.N. to B.S./R.N. Mobility Program
The purpose of the L.P.N. to B.S./R.N. program is to provide an opportunity for Licensed Practical Nurses to obtain a baccalaureate degree in nursing. This is accomplished through a program that recognizes the academic preparation and clinical practice experience of the L.P.N. by providing advanced standing opportunities through credit equivalency. Credit equivalency is determined by the Program Associate Dean/Director and members of the faculty.
All LPN students must meet college admission criteria, and must hold a current New York State registration as an L.P.N. A cumulative index of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and/or a program average of 83.0 or better from an accredited program of study, and current L.P.N. license and professional liability insurance are required. Admission/transfer requirements are noted in the Molloy College Catalog.
Program of Study
Students follow the same program of study as generic nursing students. L.P.N. to B.S./R.N. program students may receive advanced standing. Students with a minimum of one (1) year of clinical experience maybe granted equivalent credit for NUR 224 LPN: Clinical Concepts as related to Humanistic Nursing Practice (3 credits).
The decision to waive NUR 224 will be based upon the provision of direct patient care during one-year of full time practice or its part-time equivalent (employer verification is required) in an institutional setting and successful completion of a skills module (See Associate Dean for more information). All LPN students may be interviewed by Associate Dean prior to acceptance.
Credits earned at another college or university may be transferred in accordance with college policy as noted in the Molloy College Catalog. Additional credits may be earned through Division developed challenges and CLEP examination of identified liberal arts and science courses.
