**All components of the LPN to RN Transition Program CLEP Exam must be satisfactorily completed within the Nursing Department
guidelines in order for a student to be considered exempt from taking the entire course. The faculty of the Western Oklahoma State
College Nursing Department would like to encourage all LPN transition students to attend this course versus clepping the course. This
course was designed to ease your transition into your new role as an Associate Degree Nursing Student and future Registered Nurse.
