A licensed practical nurse (LPN) who wishes to expand her/his role in the nursing field can earn an associate degree in nursing through an advanced placement process. This process permits the LPN to receive credit in escrow for certain ADN courses. In addition, the LPN must complete the general education prerequisites comparable to the generic ADN student at the point she/he wishes to enter the program.
The LPN has two options for advanced placement. Option I would permit entry into the second semester of the first year of the program. Option II would permit entry into the first semester of the second year of the program.
