The Transition combines independent study, selected skill competencies, and online discussions to accomplish learning. This course is designed to assist students to begin the transition from licensed practical nurse (LPN) to registered nurse (RN). The professional responsibilities of the LPN and RN are examined and compared. Major emphasis is placed on the use of the nursing process as a tool for assisting patients to meet their biopsychosocial needs. Critical thinking skills are explored in relation to managing patient care. This course is required for LPN Advanced Placement applicants only prior to entering nursing courses. [24-24-48]
