LOUISVILLE – Sullivan University is offering an Associate of Science in Nursing (RN) degree with enrollment open for the upcoming winter quarter.

The program is designed for students who want to pursue a nursing degree without previously being a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), said Carla Carter, Dean of the Sullivan University Nursing Program. At just $275 per credit hour, the competitive tuition rate is one of the lowest in the state.

“The program is approved by the Kentucky Board of Nursing and graduates will have earned an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing and will be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) to become a registered nurse,” Dean Carter said.

The program can be completed in less than two years – approximately 21 months – if the student is enrolled in full-time classes. The student must be a high school graduate and must pass the entrance exam with pre-determined benchmark numbers.

Classes are offered at Sullivan University’s new Dupont Circle campus, which is in the heart of the largest regional medical complex outside of downtown Louisville. KentuckyOne Health Inc., Norton Healthcare and Baptist Healthcare are among the healthcare providers located in the Dupont area.

Sullivan continues to offer its Practical Nursing Program, an Associate of Science Degree completion program for Licensed Practice Nurses and an online Bachelor of Science Nursing Program.

The enhancement of Sullivan University’s popular nursing program comes at a time when Greater Louisville’s healthcare industry is scrambling to hire nurses to fill vacant positions. According to Kentuckiana Works, which matches employers with employees, over the last 90 days more than 1,700 RN jobs were posted in the region.

“The ASN program will increase nursing workforce numbers to combat the nursing shortage,” Carter said.
