Licensed Practical Nurse to Registered Nurse (LPN-RN) Options

LPNs have the option of completing the Charity School of Nursing curriculum through one of four tracks:

  1. Generic - complete the entire curriculum
  2. Credit examination for up to 13 credit hours
  3. LPN-RN transition
  4. Advanced placement for students who completed the Delgado Practical Nursing Program

Enrollment is limited in the nursing programs. Applicants are selected by a profile system ranking applicants based on the pre-nursing entrance exam (math, English, and reading); GPA (of any college course taken); Delgado GPA (if applicable); and
academic history.
