The APU experience is designed to uniquely facilitate development through solid intellectual inquiry, informed decision-making, and the application of ethical principles. A focus on Christian values and ethics is infused into the curriculum and the development of learners by providing direction, purpose, and evaluation of personal and professional life actions.
In the LVN to BSN program, students may complete their degree in 24 months. Classes are offered in a format that considers students' class and work schedules and allows students progress through the program in a cohort of peers. Cohorts start each fall, spring, and summer.
Courses are taught sequentially, and the rich diversity of experiences which students bring to the class result in lively discussions involving shared experiences. Because students stay with the same group throughout the program, they develop a strong rapport with other group members who act as a support system through the completion of the degree. Many students find the networking opportunities that arise through participating in the program to be invaluable.
