The LPN to ADN Articulation option is to facilitate continuing educational progression for LPN’s through the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Program. Articulation recognizes a common core of knowledge and psychomotor skills existent within each nursing program and establishes a mechanism for the practical nurse to achieve educational mobility. The LPN to ADN Articulation option is a cooperative effort between the programs in response to continuing education and the increased need for registered nurses.
All LPN's interested in this option must complete NAD 180 prior to entering the program. NAD 180 is a transition course which provides for the following:
Students must successfully pass the transition course with a "C" or better to be eligible for admission selection to the 2nd year of the Associate Degree Nursing Program.
Be a graduate of an Illinois approved Practical Nursing Program with a “C” or better within the last 7 years with a current unrestricted LPN license. Graduates of the Carl Sandburg College LPN program who qualify are given preference for admission selection. Applicants over the seven (7) year limit will be considered on an individual basis after meeting with the Associate Dean of Nursing.
Availability of space and resources will determine the number of students accepted.
