LPN to ADN Advanced Placement

Practical Nurses who hold a current, unrestricted Virginia license as an LPN are welcome to apply to the associate degree nursing program. We invite interested LPNs to apply during our next application period, September 9-13, 2024. The Advanced Placement Program will be offered based on the number of qualified applicants.

We recommend speaking with a Nursing Advisor (clester@patrickhenry.edu) before enrolling in courses.  All applicants to the program must attend an Information Session within 6 months of submitting their application to the program. Nursing Information Sessions will resume in August 2024.

Please note, that effective for the spring 2024 application period, MTH 155 has replaced CST 110 as a nursing pre-requisite. In addition, effective for the spring 2024 application period, SOC 200 has been replaced by ENG 112. For the 2024/25 catalog, CST 110 and SOC 200 will no longer meet ADN degree requirements.

Associate Degree Nursing Pre-Admission Testing

Students who have applied and met the pre-application and pre-requisite requirements will be invited to take the ATI TEAS entrance exam.  Areas of assessment include science, math, reading, and English and language usage. ATI TEAS study guides are on closed reserve in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) and the most recent manual information can be accessed at ATI TEAS Study Manual - For Students | ATI (atitesting.com). Students can also make an appointment in the Math Lab or Tutoring Center in the LRC to review exam topics.
