Registered Nursing (LPN to RN)

For the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) looking to advance your career path, the LPN to RN (Registered Nursing) program at Mitchell Tech is designed to build upon your previously learned and practiced foundational nursing knowledge as an LPN. Our curriculum will allow you to grow into your new RN role in just one year.

As an RN student at Mitchell Tech, you will master scientific, physiologic, psychosocial, and fundamental nursing knowledge which will expand and develop your critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills. With nursing theory and general education classes delivered online, the program requires minimal trips to campus.  You will attend clinicals one day a week within the Mitchell and surrounding communities to expand your nursing knowledge and skills. The RN program will also incorporate clinical simulation experiences using Mitchell Tech's sim labs and virtual technology.

Upon completion of the LPN to RN program, you will graduate with an Associate of Applied Science degree and be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN. Obtaining your RN degree will provide you with more opportunities to transition into a variety of expanded nursing roles. 

Graduates of the RN program will find jobs in a variety of settings that may include acute care, long term-care, ambulatory care, home health care, correctional facilities, outpatient care facilities and other settings where nurses are needed.
