Indiana State University's online LPN/LVN to BSN degree program enables licensed practical/vocational nurses to complete a bachelor of science in nursing via online learning.
Students in the LPN/LVN to BSN online program will be charged full non-resident fees, effective with those admitted for Fall 2015 or later.
The baccalaureate degree program is recognized as the basic preparation for professional nursing practice and prepares the graduate as a generalist. Baccalaureate graduates are prepared to provide direct and indirect nursing care. The graduate also is prepared as a communicator, educator, and advocate, and can assume beginning leadership roles. In addition, the baccalaureate degree is foundational for graduate study in nursing.
There are many and varied employment opportunities for registered nurses who have a baccalaureate degree. In hospitals and other health care settings, baccalaureate nurses are practicing in ways that recognize their educational preparation and nursing competencies.
Baccalaureate nurses have more complex nursing care responsibilities in providing direct care. They supervise other personnel who provide nursing care. They also collaborate with other health care professionals in developing, implementing, and evaluating comprehensive plans of health care for patients/clients of all ages in a variety of settings.
In addition, the LPN/LVN to BSN Track is approved by the Indiana State Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN).
Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
