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. 

Qualified applicants will be invited to take the Kaplan admission test which will test the following areas: Reading/Writing, Math, Vocabulary, and Science with an emphasis on Anatomy and Physiology.

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.
