The Missouri Valley College School of Nursing now offers an LPN to BSN online track for LPNs wishing to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). MVC BSN graduates are eligible to sit for the NCLEX licensure exam. This online track allows LPNs to continue working full-time while working toward their RN license. The Missouri Valley College School of Nursing prepares nurses through education and clinical experience to provide safe, evidence-based, and compassionate care to complex patients in diverse settings. Students in the online track take classes online, and, before graduating, must complete on- campus simulation lab training as well as clinical rotations with affiliated local community hospitals, tertiary care centers and other community health centers/agencies. Students applying to the MVC School of Nursing are evaluated on their ACT, TEAS/Missouri LPN license, TOEFL score, GPA’s and letters of reference. Fourteen candidates are selected yearly to enter the LPN to BSN online track. “The nursing faculty members at MVC are transforming how we teach, motivate and use technology and learning experiences to disseminate knowledge to our students,” said Peggy Van Dyke, dean, School of Nursing and nursing program director. “We partner with stakeholders and organizations to build strong health care teams that improve health outcome for our communities and across the nation. These partnerships will also help improve quality, affordable, and accessible health care in rural areas, and also increase the nursing workforce.”
