October 12, 2009

Baker College of Auburn Hills is offering a new nursing program that is specifically designed for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) who are interested in becoming Registered Nurses (RNs). Graduates of the new Nursing – LPN to ADN Ladder program earn an associate degree in nursing (ADN). Upon graduation, they are eligible to take the licensure examination to become Registered Nurses. The Michigan Board of Nursing recently approved the program at Baker’s Auburn Hills campus.

“It was through an incredible team effort, and an abundance of hard work and dedication that approval was granted and we are now able to offer this program to our nursing students,” said Jeffrey M. Love, Baker College of Auburn Hills president. “Our entire nursing faculty and staff are to be congratulated for a job well done.”

The Baker College of Auburn Hills nursing staff and faculty include:

  • Iris Lane – dean of health sciences
  • Chris Levandowski – director of nursing
  • Loretta Warda – clinical coordinator
  • Amy Barry – lab coordinator
  • Teresa Henry – health science administrative assistant

The LPN to ADN ladder program builds on the patient/client nurse experience and incorporates the knowledge, critical thinking, analytical skills and professionalism of the RN. The student will actively participate in culturally diverse learning, developing an appreciation for the moral and ethical dimensions of the issues they confront in an ever-evolving health care system.
