LPN to ADN Advanced Placement


Practical Nurses who hold a current, unrestricted, Virginia license as an LPN are welcome to apply to the associate degree nursing program. At this time, dates have not been set for when we will accept LPN-ADN advanced placement applications.  We invite interested LPNs to apply to our traditional ADN program during our next application period, March 20 – 24, 2023. 

We recommend speaking with a Nursing Advisor (clester@patrickhenry.edu) before enrolling in courses.  All applicants to the program must attend an Information Session within 6 months of submitting their application to the program. For a schedule of information session dates click here.

Associate Degree Nursing Pre-Admission Testing

Students who have applied and met the pre-application and pre-requisite requirements will be invited to take the ATI TEAS entrance exam.  Areas of assessment include science, math, reading and English and language usage. ATI TEAS study guides are on closed reserve in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) and the most recent manual information can be accessed at ATI TEAS Study Manual - For Students | ATI (atitesting.com). Students can also make an appointment in the Math Lab or Tutoring Center in the LRC to review exam topics.
