Highland Community College Technical Center features an LPN to RN Completion Program that awards an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). This is a two-semester program that enables licensed practical nurses to transit to the next level of nursing.
The ADN: LPN to RN Completion Program allows the qualified LPN to acquire the skills, knowledge, and abilities of the entry-level registered nurse. The program facilitates ethical principles, critical thinking skills, and legal practices of professional nursing enshrined in the Kansas Nurse Practice Act through a series of courses that build upon the experience and knowledge of the LPN.
Successful completion of the program allows the graduate to take the national licensure examination (NCLEX-RN ®) towards becoming a registered nurse.
About the school
Highland Community College a two-year junior college that began in 1858 in Highland, Kansas, United States. It started as Highland University in 1858, making it the foremost college in Kansas. After several name changes, the College is now in the second century of providing higher education chances to the people of Northeast Kansas in a small countryside setting.
The College has traditionally trained students to progress their studies at baccalaureate institutions. Studies executed at the Regents universities in Kansas proved that students who start their college careers at HCC and later transfer do as well or even better academically than all other students that transfer to those universities and the ones that start there. In July of 2008, it merged with the region’s technical college allowing HCC to extend its educational services to the nine county service area in Northeast Kansas.
Total program cost for Kansas and out-of-state residents is $12,024.00
