The fast-track program allows Licensed Practical Nurses and Paramedic students to complete the program in 12 months. Students must have all prerequisites completed before being admitted to the program.
“I am very proud of this class,” said NEO nursing instructor and program coordinator Vickie Garner. “They have worked hard and are bright stars. They have set high standards for future students.”
NEO faculty teach the fast-track classes at the NT campus. Clinicals are on Thursdays, and classes meet on Fridays. The convenient schedule allows those already in the workforce to complete the program and advance in their careers.
“After completing the LPN program at NT in Kansas, it was a smooth and simple transition into the new NEO Fast-Track program,” said program graduate Kaitlin Benge. “Campus is close to home and saved me the drive to Miami while still being able to obtain my nursing degree. The program is a great opportunity.”
In Oklahoma, 60% of all nurses are associate degree registered nurses, and represent 40% of the RN workforce nationwide. NEO Nursing graduates have contributed to these averages since 1975, providing high-quality healthcare within their communities.
The LPN-to-RN Fast-Track program application opens in September 2024. neo.edu/nursing
