STRONG RNs Program Model
In order to enter the STRONG RNs program, students must have participated in TRIO/Upward Bound or ACAD courses and the Loewenberg College of Nursing's Academic Success Program. These programs are designed to give students a foundation of support to prepare them for study in the nursing program.
Financial, Academic and Social Supports
As a student in the program, students are provided with a solid system of supports to promote success in the nursing program.
Academic supports include Tutoring, TLC and NCLEX preparation help.
Social supports include peer mentoring and involvement in the Student Nurses' Association.
Financial supports include scholarships and financial aid. While part of STRONG RNs, students are provided $9,000/semester to cover tuition, books and living stipend.
LCON provides professional development through clinical practice opportunities, career counseling and career fairs.
