VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Vincennes University announced Wednesday that it will begin offering a new bachelor’s degree program in nursing at its Vincennes and Jasper campuses. The programs will begin in August.

The LPN to BSN program will provide an accelerated path for licensed practical nurses to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing as they build on the prior knowledge they accumulated as LPNs and transition to careers as registered nurses.

VU’s LPN to BSN program is a hybrid learning format that allows VU students to achieve a work-school-life balance. Students are on campus for nursing courses one day per week, with some weeks being virtual. The program can be completed in as little as three years and prepares students to take the Registered Nurse Licensure Examination.

The program has two enrollment dates, including August 2022 and January 2023.
