Practical Nursing

The Practical Nursing Program is a year-long program of study. Upon successful completion of the curriculum requirements, students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN® exam and become a Licensed Practical Nurse. The mission of the Practical Nursing Program at Campbellsville University is to motivate students to apply clinical judgment and critical thinking skills acquired through knowledge and experience. Our nursing students and graduates will uphold the dignity, respect, and culturally diverse values of all persons, lead and empower others through Christian service, and promote health through innovative and holistic care.

For additional information about Practical Nursing, refer to the Training and Technology Center catalog.

Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN) Mission: The mission of the Nursing program at Campbellsville University is to motivate students to think critically through knowledge and experience. Our nursing students and graduates will uphold the dignity of all persons and respect diversity, lead and empower others through Christian service, and promote health through innovative holistic care.

Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AASN): Enrollment in the program is a selective process and is limited due to resources and the large volume of applicants. Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to the program. Applicants must be officially accepted into the program prior to enrolling in any nursing course. Applicants are considered on the basis of cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above from the following 6 prerequisite courses. Students will be admitted to the program twice annually.

  • Anatomy and Physiology I
  • Anatomy and Physiology II
  • Medical Microbiology
  • Freshman Composition I
  • College Math
  • General Psychology

Students seeking admission may only repeat pre-requisite courses once. (W, WA, WF, D, U or below count as a repeat). A minimum grade of “C” is required in all courses in the program.

An NLN Pre-Admission Exam with a composite score of 100 or above is required as well as completion of the SRNA state exam. (State Registered Nurses Aid) All students seeking Admission must attend a Pre- Admission Conference prior to application.

*Transfer/LPN Students are welcomed. Transfer credits will be accepted on a case by case basis. Standardized testing will be required to prove proficiency in transfer courses. Due to the nature of the nursing program, a transfer student coming into this program must complete a minimum of 50% of their core nursing coursework at Campbellsville University.

RN TO BSN PROGRAM MISSION: The RN to BSN Program is committed to the mission of Campbellsville University. The mission of the RN to BSN program is to offer a higher level of nursing education through an innovative, highly accessible curriculum. Tailored to the working adult, the program will provide an avenue for the adult learner to further his or her education in a Christian environment. The program serves the nurse through incorporation of professional values, improved interprofessional relationships and leadership qualities, and enhanced ability to provide care and health promotion for a diverse aggregate community. The program serves the community and the region through promoting lifelong learning and contribution to the profession of nursing and the health of society.

RN to BSN Program: Students seeking RN to BSN that do not matriculate from the CU ADN Program may apply for the RN to BSN Program at Campbellsville University if they have completed an associate degree or diploma program for registered nursing and have a current, unencumbered license to practice nursing in their state of residence.

Students entering the RN to BSN Program through the Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) may be simultaneously enrolled in either the ADN or AASN and the RN to BSN track. Students selecting CEP enrollment will be allowed to take the general education and support courses for the BSN program in conjunction with their ADN or AASN courses, but will not be allowed to enter designated restricted upper level BSN core coursework until they have completed requirements for the ADN or AASN degree and have successfully passed the NCLEX-RN®.

Because of the nature of the RN to BSN Program, it is encouraged students to be employed at least 20 hours per week as a registered nurse. Class discussion is enriched by the diverse work experience of students at this level of education. Students who choose not to work while enrolled in course work may discuss this option with the RN to BSN Program Coordinator prior to enrollment. New graduates who have not yet received their license may also apply, but will be conditionally admitted and will take non-nursing courses until the licensure process is complete.
