The Registered Nursing Program formulated the following LPN to RN Advanced
Pathway for Licensed Practical Nurses as of Fall II of 2006.
Following the NY Coalition for Educational Mobility Articulation Model, LPNs may
be admitted to the Registered Nurse Program after meeting the following criteria.
All applicants are required to:
The Bridge Course (SCR100) will include advanced Psych-Mental Health and
Medical-Surgical Nursing content. Students who enter the clinical phase of
nursing at SCR 270 level will be required to complete all other nursing
requirements in sequence.
* Students may only apply for LRN candidacy twice. Upon acceptance to SCR100, students
must achieve a minimum grade of 75%. If not the student must apply for permission to reregister
for SCR 100 bridge course in the subsequent semester.
The program is divided into two distinct phases, as shown on the attached list:
All students are admitted to the pre-clinical phase and must file for Nursing candidacy
in order to progress to the clinical phase. Candidates must first complete key
courses (see handbook) with a minimum GPA of 2.75. In addition students are
required to achieve the “Proficient Level” (58.7-77.3%) on the TEAS V (see TEAS
Entrance exam) before applying for LRN Candidacy. They are then ranked by the
Registrar’s Office on a scoring system based on grades in these key courses and certain
other required courses, as indicated on the sample score sheet
