Advanced placement opportunities are available for applicants presently or previously enrolled in a professional nursing program approved by the state and accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting body or licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPN/LVNs) who have graduated from state-approved practical/vocational nursing programs. Applicants must follow the program’s regular admission policy and procedures for acceptance prior to being advanced placed in the program. All advanced placed students must complete at least six (6) courses, including three (3) nursing courses at the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing Program in order to graduate. Prior to enrollment in nursing courses, students seeking advanced placement may be required to validate previous nursing knowledge through written validation testing and subsequently demonstrate clinical competency. These tests are valid for twelve months. After twelve months, a student must retest and pass all required validation tests in order to be enrolled in nursing courses. Advanced placement classes and/or a transition seminar will be required and fees will be charged. Enrollment in nursing courses is on a space available basis.
