What nursing programs are offered at LC?
Lynchburg College offers a traditional BSN program, a second-degree BSN program, and a MSN Clinical Nurse Leader program.
I am a senior in high school looking to apply to the Lynchburg College nursing program. When will I apply?
The first step for students who are currently in high school is applying to Lynchburg College and being accepted. Once accepted to LC, students will need to take the necessary pre-requisite courses as well as the TEAS test. Typically, students apply for the nursing program in the spring semester of their freshman year.
What is the process for applying as a transfer student?
Transfer students will apply to both Lynchburg College and the nursing major.
I am currently attending another university and have already taken some nursing courses. Will the nursing courses transfer?
Previously taken nursing courses will need to be evaluated to see if they will be transferable to our program. Due to the state licensing process, the courses we offer are very specific. Therefore, the courses will only transfer if it meets specific objectives and criteria.
I currently hold a Bachelor’s degree in another field. What is the process for applying for a second Bachelor’s degree in nursing?
Lynchburg College offers a second degree program for students who already hold a Bachelor’s degree. This accelerated nursing program offers individuals who already hold a bachelor’s degree to earn a BS in nursing in less time than a traditionally-structured program. The program begins each year in the first summer session in May.
What is the process for applying as a second-degree student?
Second-degree students that have completed all required nursing prerequisite courses will complete either an application to Lynchburg College or through NursingCAS with a submission deadline of April 1.
Does your program require an entrance exam, such as the TEAS?
Yes, we require freshman and transfer students to take the TEAS test. Students must make an overall score of 60% or higher with at least a 50% in the four major sub-sections: Reading, Science, Math, and English. Second degree students are not required to take the TEAS test.
