The LPN to BSN articulation program at Washburn University is specifically designed for licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPNs) seeking to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Qualified students who have graduated from a Kansas State Board of Nursing approved school will receive fifteen (15) credit hours of college coursework. These students will receive credit for the following courses.

NU 220Principles of Nutrition3
NU 311Fundamentals Nursing Practice/Practicum6
NU 386Nursing of Older Adults6

LPN student graduates from out-of-state programs may be eligible for advanced credit upon review of transcripts. The LPN to BSN articulation student will need to complete the remaining general education courses and nursing requirements. Interested students need to make an appointment with a nursing advisor.

Credit for courses listed above will be posted on the Washburn University transcript after being officially accepted to the nursing major. Course work will be posted on transcripts as “CR” for credit without a letter grade. These courses will not count in computation of grade point averages.
