The LPN to RN Diploma program is a 12-month, 32 hours per week program consisting of classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences. Financial aid available to those who qualify.
This program has received full approval from the Ohio Board of Nursing.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the National Council of Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for licensure as a registered nurse. Licensure as a registered nurse is based upon successful completion of all course requirements and achievement of a passing score on the NCLEX examination.
The LPN to RN Diploma Program at A-Tech is working with other university programs to promote the articulation from RN to BSN.
