Level I/PN has Full Approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing (MSBN).

Level II/RN is currently on MSBN Conditional Approval. 

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. Bi-Level Nursing Student Handbook

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.
