ADN Program Details
The LHU Nursing Program, established in 1990, offers an Associate of Science degree in nursing. The program is designed to give you hands-on clinical experiences needed to become an excellent nurse. In addition to your coursework, you will rotate through quality healthcare facilities, all within a reasonable distance from the campus.
Nursing students work directly with patients, nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals in specialty areas such as mental health, medical/surgical, OB/maternal child, acute care, long term care, physician's offices, emergency room, neonatal ICU, surgical center, prison, home health and orthopedics. This, along with rigorous classroom nursing instruction and general education courses which complement your clinical experience, will prepare you to pass state board exams.
This highly selective and competitive program limits the number of enrolled students. It is highly recommended that interested candidates review the required prerequisites and apply one year prior to the fall in which they plan to enroll for admission consideration.
RN to BSN Program Details
The BSN program provides upper division opportunities facilitating mobility of graduates from Associate Degree and Diploma programs, allowing them the opportunity to enhance
their education and career options. The primary goal is to function in a variety of settings: providing care of the sick in and across environments; participating in, planning, implementing and evaluating activities and programs to promote health; and facilitating population-based health care.
The program is designed to build on the student’s knowledge and experience as a registered nurse, enhancing skills in critical thinking, case management, and leadership roles.
RN-to-BSN students in nursing must have proof of graduation from a NLNAC accredited nursing program and proof of current registered nurse licensure. Students may choose to participate in a full-time or part-time curriculum.
