Nursing Program Mission Statement

Prepare students to be professional, caring Registered Nurses who promote optimal levels of wellness for individuals, families, and communities.

LPN/Advanced Standing Transition Course

LPN/Advanced Standing Transition (NUR1040) is offered spring semester, contingent upon enrollment, space, and instructor availability.  Students should register for NUR1040 only after:

  • All admission requirements are met.
  • Acceptance into nursing, including a written response from students.
  • Prerequisites are completed for NUR1040 and other current courses.
  • Attendance at an LPN/Advanced Standing Transition Information Session is verified.

Upon successful completion of ATI, RN Fundamentals of Nursing Assessment of Level 1 or higher, credit will be given for the following courses (ATI test limited to 3 attempts):

  • NUR 1003 Nurse Aide Training
  • NUR 1400 Foundations of Adult Nursing Care I
  • NUR 1004 Nursing Test Success  (LPN only)

Your Degree

LPN, Paramedics, and Military Medics must complete the Nursing (RN) Technology Program within five (5) years of passing the most recent successful Fundamentals ATI Exam.  Graduates of this program are then eligible to take the licensing examination of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing to become a Registered Nurse (RN).

Dual Degree

One pathway to achieve the BSN is to declare a dual degree at Marion Technical College.  The dual degree would be an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing and an Associate of Science.  An advantage of the dual degree would be that the MTC student can take additional courses that are transferrable to the BSN.

Articulation

Marion Technical College has articulation agreements in which graduates from the ADN program can seamlessly transfer into BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing).
