Level I/PN and Level II/RN have Full Approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing (MSBN).
The Bi-level Nursing Program admits all beginning nursing students to Level I/PN, with students progressing to Level II/RN after graduation from Level I/PN. A limited number of already practicing LPN's are admitted to Level II/RN on a space available basis only. All students progressing within the program must meet progression requirements, including licensure as an LPN by midterm of the first semester of Level II/RN. Once progression requirements are met, admission to Level II/RN is automatic; reapplication is not necessary.
Clinical Practicum Requirements
Level I/PN evening/weekend students are required to attend the occasional weekday clinical practicum.
Level II/RN day and evening/weekend students are required to complete one 12-hour shift every other week on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday. See Clinical Options.
All clinical/immunization requirements are due by the first day of class. Students who have not completed the requirements by this time, will not be allowed in class. Any class time missed, will count as an absence and is subject to the attendance policy found in the nursing student handbook.
