LPN to BSN Programs in Delaware

Delaware LPN to BSN Programs

There are many careers that can be pursued by a nursing student choosing to earn a BSN degree. A bachelor's of science in nursing degree can be used to teach future nursing students, run public health programs or work as an advanced nurse in a healthcare setting. Nurses in the state of Delaware who already hold a valid LPN license may be able to pursue an advanced degree with the help of an LPN to BSN program. This program is offered by many online and traditional colleges in an effort to help nurses pursue an advanced nursing degree.

An LPN to BSN program is designed to allow students to earn their BSN degree in three to four years. This is compared to the four to six years a traditional BSN degree program can take. One of the reasons this program is so much faster is because it gives students the chance to test out of some of the basic nursing courses. Testing out of the courses allows students to use their previous knowledge and experience to their advantage. When students choose to test out of a course they are required to take a written test that allows them to show their knowledge.

Another reason the LPN to BSN program is faster than the traditional BSN program is the ability for students to use their work experience as part of their clinicals. Students who are enrolled in a BSN program must take part in several hours of clinical work. This clinical work allows students to gain hands-on experience in the nursing industry. Students who are enrolled in an LPN to BSN program have the option to use work experience as part of the clinical work, instead of having to engage in several hours of separate clinical work.

The setup of the LPN to BSN program is very similar to the traditional BSN program. Students are still expected to take part in regular college courses, such as English, math and communication courses. They are also expected to take part in basic and advanced health and nursing courses. They will also be required to take part in clinical work and hands-on training. Students who are enrolled in an LPN to BSN program in the state of Delaware are expected to maintain a 2.5 GPS in their traditional college courses. This GPA is required to enter into the more advanced health and nursing courses.
