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.
