If you're an LPN, the next step up the career ladder, higher salary, more responsibility and greater opportunity is to become an RN. Registered Nurse is one of the top ten professions in the country. They have a wide range of duties and can get involved in diagnosing and treating, health teaching, health counseling and executing medical plans prescribed by a physician. RNs provide direction to licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and nursing aids.
Our one-year program takes into account your training and experience so you can "bridge" the gap to an associate's degree in nursing (ADN) and prepare you to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.
You'll get hands-on experience and excellent instruction in our state-of-the-art Health Science Institute.
We meet the highest standards in the nursing field. Our program is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc, and fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
