NDSU will hold a FREE, live, online information session on April 30 at 11:30 a.m. CDT for individuals interested in the blended learning Licensed Practical Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (LPN to BSN) program. Licensed practical nurses who hold an associate degree in nursing are invited to participate in this FREE information session to learn more about the blended learning LPN to BSN program. Join representatives from NDSU's Nursing and Distance & Continuing Education departments for a live discussion of the blended learning LPN to BSN degree program.  Get your questions answered by Karla Haug, MS, RN, Director LPN to BSN program.  Find out key information you need to know to be successfully admitted into the program.  This live information session will:

  • give you a sneak peek of the program,
  • help you gather information about topics covered in the courses,
  • discuss expectations of students,
  • allow you to ask questions about the validation exams and how to successfully prepare for them,
  • assist in determining how you can fit in the on-campus/clinical requirements, and
  • give you the opportunity to ask your specific questions.

 “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,” stated Lisa Nordick, Director of Distance and Continuing Education. Individuals who participate in this information session will hear about the program first hand from Haug the Program Director as well as from current students. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

If you were to search online for a school that offers a blended learning LPN to BSN program you would find that very few colleges or universities appear in the search results as a school that offers this program in a blended learning environment.  This makes NDSU’s program unique and in demand.  “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 Program Director, Karla Haug, MS, RN. The blended learning environment offers LPNs the ability to study online from wherever they live but participate in their clinical requirements in Fargo – Moorhead with nursing faculty. The face-to-face clinical component of the program allows the NDSU Nursing Department to ensure that students receive the quality of instruction that NDSU is known for. 

All individuals interested in the blended learning LPN to BSN program are invited to attend this FREE, live, online informational session but preregistration is required. For more information about the LPN to BSN degree or to register for the information session go to ndsu.me/dcelbsn or call 701-231-7015.
