Athabasca University’s Post-LPN Bachelor of Nursing is designed to meet the specific education needs of current Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) who are registered in Alberta.

The program builds on your current knowledge and practice skills, and prepares you for the National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) exam. Your studies will include: medical surgical nursing, mental health care, nursing informatics, nursing research, primary health care, leadership, management and family and community health promotion. You will also have the opportunity to develop a clinical focus in the final Consolidated Professional Practice course.

All AU nursing courses are mapped to the most current entry-to-practice competencies as determined by the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA) and to the NCLEX-RN detailed test plan as determined by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).

The Post-LPN BN is accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and approved by the Nursing Education Program Approval Board (NEPAB). It is also a solid foundation for future graduate study in many health disciplines.

AU offers a broad liberal university education and the flexibility to continue with your work and family commitments while you learn. All non-clinical courses are delivered via online education. You will also need to complete on-site practical components in order to complete the program.

Self-discipline was highly necessary for student like me who was working full time and studying full time. It was challenging to receive the resources in time due to the long distance study.

 I became an executive while I was learning to be an executive. AU’s online format made it possible for me to complete my MBA as I pursued my passion for geology in countries as far away as West Africa. As I learned, I applied my newfound knowledge to my role as CEO and it allowed me to expand my career in ways I never thought possible.
