Starting your medical career as LVN can be exciting. However, many Licensed Vocational Nurses are looking to further their education to become an RN, as it brings more career opportunities and a higher earning potential. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that RN positions are growing “much faster than average”, at a rate of 16% from 2014 to 2024.
Here at The College of Healthcare Professions, we offer an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing Program that is designed to transition LVNs to Registered Nurses in 76 Weeks. So here are 3 reasons why our LVN to RN program will advance your career.
- Promotes you to where you want to be.
- LVNs typically work within long-term care facilities such as nursing homes or rehabilitation facilities. Their duties are limited based on the education and experience.
- Registered Nurses have a larger range of locations to work including hospitals, clinics, and surgical hospitals. They can also work in a range of different specialties such as Pediatrics, Critical Care or Oncology.
- In Class & Clinical Preparations
- Here at CHCP, we offer both in class and clinical hands-on training.
- In-class this is done with High fidelity & Mid-Fidelity Simulation Mannequins. These mannequins prepare students for the clinical setting with a programmable simulator that can help students develop critical patient care, diagnostic, and treatment skills.
- Off-site, students are taught through clinical experience. They are assigned to various setting throughout the Houston Metro where student work hands-on with experienced RNs, clinical instructors & patients.
- NCLEX Testing Preparation
- Because we want our students to succeed in completing the program, we offer our RN students comprehensive NCLEX Testing Prep. During the course of the year, we give student various assignment that includes NCLEX style questions on the current module’s material. We also have a designated prep course included in the curriculum. This course is a part of Module 10 and includes 36 hours of licensure preparation. (See RSNG2130)
