Advanced Standing of
Licensed Practical Nurses
Articulation Plan

Butler Community College Department of Nursing, in support of the Nursing Education Articulation Plan for Kansas, provides an opportunity for articulation of the licensed practical nurse (LPN) into the second year of the associate degree nursing curriculum. At the time of graduation, the student has earned an Associate in Applied Science Degree and is eligible to take the national licensure examination for registered nurses.

Butler Community College believes in the concept of educational and career mobility, encouraging each individual to continue to build on the foundation of education and experience he/she has already achieved in reaching his/her own individual potential. The nursing faculty encourages the LPN to evaluate his/her resources and abilities in order to establish realistic career goals.
