Two programs are available to the licensed vocational nurse (LVN): the Licensed Vocational Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (LVN to BSN) and Licensed Vocational Nurse to Registered Nurse (LVN to RN) (30-unit option). LVNs are evaluated on an individual basis. Credit is given for general education courses that are transferable. The first-year nursing course, UNRS 105, is waived for currently licensed LVNs.
LVN students must take UNRS 270 Theories and Concepts in Professional Nursing prior to any other nursing course at APU.
