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 before the end 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.
Beginning in 2014 the Level II/RN evening/weekend program began offering Clinical Options, requiring student’s commitment to one 12-hour shift every other week on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday.
The program makes every attempt to meet student needs when scheduling the clinical rotation. However, we are required to work within the restrictions of clinical site availability and any student health requirements or previous criminal history.
All requirements are due by the end of the first week 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.
