Students applying for the LPN-RN transition program must have a current, valid LPN license from the state of Pennsylvania at the time of application.
English, mathematics, science and social science electives must be completed with a C grade or better prior to admission to the nursing program. All science and developmental courses must have been completed with a grade of C or better by the third attempt. Attempts include withdrawals and incompletes.
Students must complete 68 credits, not including prerequisites, with at least 30 credits being completed in CCAC classes.
The student may transfer all non-nursing requirements taken through the three nursing semesters (total of 29 credits). Students will still need to take at least one (1) additional credit at CCAC to have the required 30 CCAC credits.
Credits from other colleges and universities can be evaluated when those official transcripts are received in the Registration and Advisement Office, but may not be posted until the student has successfully completed his/her first term in the program.
Students must have a grade point average of 2.8 or greater from college transcripts.
