The RN completer program is designed to allow currently Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) to become a registered nurse without repeating the entire nursing curriculum. Upon completion, students will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science Nursing Degree (A45110).
Students seeking admission to the associate degree nursing program must meet competitive criteria. The student must also meet specific requirements of the clinical agencies. These requirements will include but are not limited to a criminal background check, drug screen, CPR and proof of immunizations. Furthermore, a criminal background check will be required before taking the NCLEX-RN Examination leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse.
Graduates are able to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Successful completion of the program does not guarantee licensure. The North Carolina Board of Nursing may not issue a license to an applicant who has been convicted of a criminal offense.
Applicants to the program will receive credit for NUR-111, NUR-112, NUR-114, and NUR-117 based on coursework completed in the LPN curriculum upon successful completion of NUR-214.
