William Carey University making it easier to become RNs
William Carey University’s School of Nursing is making it easier for licensed practical nurses in the state to become registered nurses while continuing to work at their current jobs.
The existing LPN advanced placement program will be offered in a hybrid format beginning in fall 2023 with required pre-nursing courses taught in the summer of 2023.
William Carey University developed the program based on feedback from the medical community, saying many LPNs want to pursue RN licensure but haven’t been able to because of work and family obligations.
The new program is currently limited to those who are licensed in Mississippi
