The ADN Transition program is designed for the current unrestricted Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to complete the ADN program. Applicants must meet the algebra requirement for Associate Degree Nursing and a satisfactory score must be obtained on a math-pharmacology competency exam.

The ADN faculty will administer this exam to the qualified applicants in late fall semester. Pharmacology outlines for Independent review will be available from the Admissions Office or Health Sciences and Nursing Division in the fall semester. For additional information, contact the Admissions Office at ext. 301, 331, or 395. Official transition Into the ADN programs begins each spring. 

Math - An applicant must have completed one of the following before receiving the applicant packet:

An unweighted high school GPA of 2.8 or higher from a College Prep Curriculum valid within 10 years.  If this is not met, one of the following options, within 10 years, will satisfy the math requirement: Qualifying placement scores; A grade of “P” for DMA 010-080; A grade of “C” or higher for MAT 080 OR RISE placement if outside the 10 year high school timeframe and must demonstrate mastery of Units 1-12 (Tier 2) or will be required to complete the transition course until mastery in Unit 12 (Tier 2) is met. 

Students who do not satisfy the high school GPA or RISE placement requirements, must attend the transition course, MAT 003, until mastery is achieved through Unit 12 (Tier 2). Students who have completed a college approved math course such as MAT 122 , MAT 141, MAT 151, MAT 161, MAT 171 , or MAT 263  with a “C” or better

Additional Information:


All Health Sciences and Nursing students must have grades of “A,” ”B,” ”C,” or “SA” on all applicable course work to progress each semester and graduate from the program. 

Please note that this is a possible semester-by-semester course of study. Any transition courses such as Math and English that are necessary for student placement could extend the time needed for completion. In such cases, graduation may be extended by one or more semester(s). Other delays might be experienced in regard to the timelines of various course offerings.
