LPN to RN Entry Track

The Department of Nursing offers an option for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) to receive credit for previously acquired knowledge and skills. Advanced standing is acquired through a similar admissions process as that described above, along with validation of current practical nurse licensure in the State of Louisiana and the use of challenge exams. LPNs should contact the Department of Nursing at (225) 216-8879 and attend one of the weekly information sessions for specific admission and curricular requirements.

The Application for the LPN-RN Program becomes available online Monday, November 12, 2018 with the deadline being Friday, December 7, 2018.
