Free information session scheduled for online nursing program
NDSU has scheduled a free online information session for individuals interested in a licensed practical nurse to Bachelor of Science in nursing program. The session is set for April 30 at 11:30 a.m.
The online degree program is for the licensed practical nurse with an associate degree in nursing who wants to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing and become eligible for licensure as a registered nurse.
Participants can ask questions and interact with current students and representatives from NDSU’s Department of Nursing and Distance and Continuing Education.
“With so many students interested in this program and all of them asking similar questions, it makes sense to offer a live, online information session where they have the opportunity to hear about the program directly from representatives of the program,” said Lisa Nordick, director of Distance and Continuing Education.
Few college or universities offer a similar program. The blended learning environment allows licensed practical nurses the ability to study online from anywhere but participates in their clinical requirements in a Fargo-Moorhead nursing facility.
“NDSU’s LPN to BSN program currently receives more student applications than we can accept on a yearly basis, which illustrates the need for a blended learning program,” said Karla Haug, program director.
The information session is free, but preregistration is required. To register, or for more information about the program, visit ndsu.me/dcelbsn or call 701-231-7015.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
