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.

I have been in the pursuit of my MN degree for 2 years. I am beyond pleased; faculty and employees are great and respond promptly to my queries . I would recommend this program to any busy nurse out there who would like to continue their education, but cannot b/c of the constraints of balance of work and home. This is not a walk in the park either, you must be organized, dedicated and stay ontop of your work .

I had an amazing experience at Athabasca U! I was able to finish my graduate degree in nursing, which was fully online and keep my full-time job. I did not lose any pay from work, or any seniority at work. I only had to work around taking my vacation/stat days off, and needed to do homework in my spare time, usually on weekends. Although, it was challenging to juggle my time, I found my professors to be fair and understanding, and I could always get the support when needed. I felt that I made the best decision for my career by choosing a online degree, and it has made me a more rounded person, and it opened a lot of doors for me! I would recommend AU for any busy working professional!!!
