The online transition program is for LVN’s and paramedics and is traditionally completed within one year. This will allow completion of three levels or sets of courses in three consecutive semesters. Students will need to participate in a one week orientation on campus during the first week of the program.
The online second-degree program is for basic track students with a prior college degree. This program is traditionally scheduled over two years, but the Quest program can be completed in a shorter time period. Students will complete this program in four (4) consecutive semesters. There are four sets of courses in the basic track program with completion expected in four consecutive semesters. Students will need to participate in a one week orientation on campus during the first week of the program.
Prerequisite courses and admission requirements are the same as for the traditional programs. In addition, applicants to the online program must have experience with online courses and have the ability to function independently. Transition students must be currently employed in a healthcare facility. Students who have no online course experience or have been unsuccessful in a traditional nursing program will not be eligible for the online program. International students have limitations on taking online courses and may be ineligible depending on immigration status.
Application ranking points will be used in selection of students. In addition, top candidates will be invited for an interview.
Applications will be available online at LSC-Kingwood Nursing Department, November18, 2013- January 31, 2014 for the Summer 2014 program for second degree students.
