Effective fall 2024, Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital will offer a licensed practical nurse (LPN) advance placement program completion pathway for LPNs who have obtained licensure within the past five years. Those entering the pathway will receive transfer credits for the college’s initial nursing course, foundations of nursing practice thus allowing students to complete the program sooner.
“Offering advance placement is a great option for LPNs who wish to continue their education and pursue an A.A.S. in nursing. It’s an affordable, efficient pathway which will save students time and allow them to enter the professional nursing workforce sooner,” says Amy Graham, assistant dean for enrollment.
The nursing component of the pathway can be completed in just three semesters (traditional day option) or three terms (evening-weekend option). Advance placement is considered on an individual basis after review of all LPN coursework, syllabi and official transcripts. A maximum of eight transfer credits may be awarded and only granted for foundations of nursing practice. If LPN coursework had been awarded in a format other than credit hours (such as clock hours), conversion to credit hours will be conducted. Students awarded advance placement must meet the college’s preco-requisite general education course requirements during enrollment.
