LPN-RN: Advanced Placement Program

LPNs: Apply for our accelerated RN track!

This LPN-RN program is designed for LPNs who would like to qualify for RN licensure. To be eligible for advanced placement, the candidate must show proof of a current, valid Massachusetts license as a Licensed Practical Nurse.

Once a candidate has been accepted to the advanced placement program and paid the deposit fee, he or she has the opportunity to sit for the fee-based HESI Fundamentals of Nursing examination and the HESI Maternity and Pediatrics examination. These examinations will be offered three times a year in fall, spring, and summer. Only one examination may be taken per testing session.

Eligible students are sent HESI registration forms and examination preparation information 4-6 weeks prior to the examination. The cost of each exam is $79.00 by check or money order made payable to Labouré College. The HESI examinations are computerized and scores are given immediately upon completion.

A minimum score of 780 on each of these examinations is necessary for exemption credit to be earned as follows:

  • NUR1000 (Fundamentals): 9 credit hours and exempt from enrolling in NUR1000
  • NUR2000 (Maternity/Pediatrics): 8 credit hours and exempt from enrolling in NUR2000

There will be no opportunity for re-tests. Placement into any nursing course is on a space-available basis.

Advanced placement students are encouraged to attend a nursing orientation before beginning nursing courses.

Please visit the nursing program overview page for information on curriculum, course descriptions, clinical placement, and career information.
