The Associate Degree Nursing Track for Transition/Articulating students (for current Texas LVNs and Paramedics) is a three semester course of study that prepares graduates to take the licensure examination for registered nurses and receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree. The ADN program is accredited by The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) and by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
Students are admitted in April and will begin their three semesters of coursework in June. Usually, thirty students will be admitted each spring into LSC-North Harris's Transition Program.
The Transition/Articulation Track is a full-time, day program. Class/skills labs are twice per week between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Clinicals in a hospital setting are either a one day 10 hour clinical, or a two day clinical for 5 hours each day. Most clinicals are in the day but some are scheduled at night based on hospital availability. Computerized exams are used. Studying and projects require an additional time commitment. The college is closed on Fridays during the summer.
