Northcentral Technical College provides a pathway option that allows individuals who have a current Wisconsin LPN license to bridge their education and training into a Nursing Associate Degree.

How It Works

After applying, meeting admission requirements and completing prerequisites (which include, but are not limited to, a copy of state your current Wisconsin LPN license and general studies courses), your transcript(s) will be reviewed by the Nursing Admissions Committee. If approved, you will be notified by your advisor and proceed to the next steps which include:

  • Petition and HESI test
  • Successfully complete the Return to Nursing Review Course (10-543-120) during the semester before entering NTC’s Nursing Program
  • After successful completion of the bridge course, students can begin third semester Nursing Associate Degree coursework


The approximate cost for this offering is $7,425 (Tuition: $5,534, Books: $1,891).
