The LPN-to-BSN (Veteran) pathway is an accelerated program for LPNs who are veterans and seeking to pursue a BSN and earn their RN license. This program is designed to build upon the skills and knowledge gained through an LPN program and previous military health training. Students can complete this concentration in 12 months following completion of the prerequisite requirements. The program must be completed on a full-time basis.
To be eligible to apply for the LPN-to-BSN (Veteran) pathway, applicants must be veterans of the U.S. military and have a current LPN license. For more information on prerequisites and requirements, visit the Mason Catalog.
Application to the BSN program is a process involving two applications: the George Mason University Undergraduate Application and the BSN Departmental Application. (Currently enrolled Mason students need only apply using the BSN Departmental Application.) Acceptance to the nursing program is contingent upon admission to the university. Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to the nursing program.
Application to the BSN major is a competitive admission process. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission into the nursing program - it only allows an application to be considered in the review process.
