Admissions Process (General)

The admissions process at Labouré College operates on a rolling basis for all programs except for the Associate in Science in Nursing program (see next FAQ: Admissions Process (Nursing: AS). Rolling admissions means that there are no final deadlines to apply; rather, applications are reviewed as they become complete, and until a program is filled. Programs with limited capacity can fill up quickly. In the event that a program is filled for a particular semester, the completed application will be considered for the next available semester.

Students who apply, but do not complete their application packet for a given semester, will be given the choice to be rolled over and assessed for the next available semester, or be withdrawn from the College if their original application semester becomes full.

Admissions Process (Nursing: AS)

The Associate in Science in Nursing program will only accept applications during the open application period. Decisions will be sent based on when a student’s completed application packet was submitted.

Candidates who submit a completed application packet prior to the Early Action Deadline will be reviewed first and sent a decision by the Early Action Admissions Decision date.

Candidates whose completed applications are submitted after the Early Action Deadline and before the Regular Admissions Deadline will be sent a decision by the Regular Admissions Decision date. Candidates whose completed application is submitted after a deadline or after the program has been filled may be reviewed on a space available basis.

The Office of Admissions will extend acceptance offers to qualified candidates until the program has been filled for a particular semester. Qualified candidates who are not initially offered acceptance may be placed on a waitlist. If spots become available, the students on the waitlist will be offered acceptance.

Direct Entry to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (RN-to-BSN)

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Labouré College is an RN-to-BSN program, which means that applicants must already have their RN licensure, or be awaiting their NCLEX examination date for RN licensure.

Registered Nurses (RNs) who have passed their NCLEX examination are eligible to apply for admission into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Labouré. If you have completed an Associate in Science in Nursing program and are awaiting your NCLEX exam date, please contact the Office of Admissions to discuss the best timeline for application and entry into the RN-BSN program.

If you do not have your RN licensure, you will need to start with the Associate in Science in Nursing program first, which will prepare you to seamlessly transition into the BSN component.

LPN-RN Bridge Program

Labouré College offers an Advanced Placement LPN-RN Program that is designed for current LPNs wishing to attain an Associate in Science degree in Nursing and qualify for RN licensure.

To be eligible for advanced placement, the candidate must complete the Transfer Application: Associate in Science in Nursing Application procedure through the Admissions Department.

Advanced Placement applicants must supply a copy of their current LPN license with their application, and may be eligible for professional course transfer credit via Credit by Examination. Please contact the Office of Admissions to learn more.

Transfer Credits

Students enrolled in degree programs (associate or bachelor) at Labouré College may transfer in prior coursework, as long as the courses meet the criteria outlined in our Transfer Credit Policy. We do not grant transfer credit for life experience or prior professional/clinical coursework.

Please note: While transfer credit is not granted for prior professional/clinical coursework, credit-by-examination may be available. 

Transfer credit is not available for certificate programs.

Clinical Coursework

Each program at Labouré College has different clinical requirements and clinical start dates vary.

Degree programs that include a general education core typically see clinical courses begin once the student completes the general education courses.
