In addition to classroom instruction, students engage in clinical activity in hospitals, long-term care facilities, community agencies, home care settings, or the college laboratories.
  • LPN-to-RN Track: The LPN-RN Track at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College Nursing Department is designed to meet the LPN's educational needs through its flexibility and recognition of the LPN's proven knowledge through the LPN licensure process.
