LTC has a three-step Admissions/Enrollment college application process for all Nursing students. Step One is to complete the admissions requirement to get accepted into the college. Step Two is to complete the class registration requirements to enroll into general education courses. Step Three is to complete the program requirements to be accepted into the Bridge program.
It is mandatory that all of the Nursing general education classes be completed prior to starting the core nursing classes. A grade of C or better is required in all classes with the following exceptions. ADN requires that each of the two Anatomy and Physiology classes have a grade of B or better. PN requires that Body Structure and Function have a grade of B or better.
Bridge students are required to take the HESI PN Exit Exam. The Bridge program is a summer-only entry with two preparatory bridge courses. The number of seats available are limited.
The LPN Bridge to Associate Degree Nursing classes are mostly offered during the day.
For information on the Medical Assistant Bridge to Practical Nursing program, please see the Medical Assistant program.
LTC welcomes nursing transfer students who have been enrolled in core nursing classes at other institutions.
A Letter (email) of Good Standing must be sent from the previous institution’s Director of Nursing directly to the LTC Nursing Program Advisor. This letter supports that the student transferring is in good standing in that program and should include why the student is leaving the former nursing program.
A decision on transfer and admission will be made based upon the information provided, current LTC policies and standards, as well as the standards and policies of the program of enrollment.
Students must meet the published admission,enrollment, and program requirements established prior to entering the nursing program (background check, health form, HESI, program advising, etc.).
LTC welcomes general education course takers from other institutions (typically online summer courses). Students must show prerequisite course completion prior to registration. The LTC Nursing Advisor is sent either an official transcript or a transcript directly from their college.
Students enrolled in another WTCS nursing program can take an LTC core nursing course with approval from their institution. A Letter (email) of Good Standing needs to be sent to the LTC Nursing Advisor that states permission to take the specific class and that it will be accepted by their program.
