 Credit for Prior Learning

The Loewenberg College of Nursing (LCON) appreciates the knowledge and skills that RN students bring to the BSN program and acquire through formal mentored residencies and internship programs. Accordingly, students may earn college credit for prior learning experience with approval. Course credit may be earned through a national standardized achievement exam and by professional portfolio.

Credit by examination (CBE) can be earned for three RN-BSN courses: Health Assessment & Lab (NURS 3101/3103), Pathophysiology (NURS 3400), and Pharmacology (NURS 3000). Students will be awarded college level credit after admission to LCON by successfully passing a professionally recognized national exam at the national proficiency benchmark. CBE can be earned by a) achieving proficiency on a standardized achievement exam taken in the associate degree nursing (ADN) program and b) taking a national standardized exam at LCON.

Credit through prior learning assessment portfolio may be earned for a maximum of four (4) credits in the Transitions into Professional Nursing Practice Practicum (NURS 4206). Professional experiences with validation may include: new graduate residency, national nursing certification, professionally recognized continuing education credits, clinical teaching in higher education, scholarly presentations and publications, clinical project leadership, and leadership in professional nursing or healthcare organization.
