Hawai‘i Pacific University Offers Military Corpsman Pathway to Bachelor’s of Nursing

Hawai‘i Pacific University Offers Military Corpsman Pathway to Bachelor’s of Nursing

 

As an extension to its noted nursing programs, Hawai‘i Pacific University has added a new pathway for military medical personnel who want to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

 

“The new pathway, the LVN/LPN or Military Hospital Corpsman (HM) to BSN Track, provides an opportunity for Hospital Corpsman to take a national standardized exam to demonstrate equivalence in training and education to a Licensed Vocational Nurse,” said Dr. Lynette Landry, dean of HPU’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

 

“This means that the Corpsman who passes the exam will be required to take courses that are equivalent to those required of an LVN/LPN who is seeking RN licensure,” said Landry. “For both LVNs and Corpsmen, there are now standardized exams that they can opt to take instead of our required courses.”
