Advance your career in nursing! Columbus State's LPN to RN program allows working LPNs to upgrade their credentials and become a Registered Nurse.

LPNs generally follow the same plan of study as our RN students, although they take a summer intensive bridge course and may already have credit for some courses. LPNs may be able to obtain Prior Learning ("N" Credit) for up to three courses.

LPNs must apply to Columbus State and complete all prerequisites before applying to the program. LPNs must be licensed in Ohio. For more detailed questions, contact Academic Advising (website, (614) 287-2779).
