Earn your BSN degree and become a Registered Nurse

The LPN to RN programs in Nebraska builds upon the students License Practical Nurse (LPN) training and expand the knowledge of nursing management skills and process to become a Registered Nurse (RN). The course of studies includes core nursing classes, as well as general studies in science and liberal arts to give the student a more rounded education.

The LPN to RN programs are designed to allow LPN’s to pursue an RN and expedite the educational process by being able to accrue credit for courses, and sometimes work experience, taken while studying for an LPN. The program chosen must be accredited and recognized by the Nebraska Board of Registered Nurses.

Some nursing schools in Nebraska require an LPN to RN student to have a minimum of 6 months clinical experience and prerequisites that include English composition, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology and introductory psychology. Student’s, whose science prerequisites are older than 7 years, will be required to take a qualifying pilot exam as part of the admission application.

Most nursing schools offer an LPN to RN that result in an Associate’s degree and Bachelor’s degree. Completing an Associate’s degree will prepare the student to take the state required NCLEX-RN examination. Credits from the Associate’s degree program are transferrable to a Bachelor’s degree program, in the event the student wishes to pursue the higher degree.

LPN to RN candidates are not required to be licensed as an LPN to enter the LPN to RN program, but the student must have successfully passed an accredited LPN program. The candidate will be required to have taken the same prerequisites to enter the program.

Achieving RN status by becoming an LPN first will sometimes take less time than entering a degree program from the start. Working as an LPN is sometimes taken into consideration when allocating credit hours for a degree program. Earning an Associate’s degree can take as little as two semesters and a Bachelors degree in five semesters. The actual time it will take to complete the program and earn a degree depends on the number of bridge classes required and the prerequisites taken.

The State of Nebraska requires NCLEX-RN examination candidates be at least 19 years old at the time of application and must be verified with a driver’s license, State ID, military ID or marriage license. The applicant must also be a citizen of the United States or a legal permanent resident and provide a birth certificate, American Indian card, a U.S. ID card, green card, a current foreign passport or a Northern Marinara card.

Applications for the licensing exam must be submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services. Applicants that are approved will be provided the opportunity to take the exam. Applicants must submit a transcript verifying completion of an accredited program and a signed passport photo.
