If any one is interested the class is NCE 223 (I think that it's offered at Gateway and MCC). I was worried about this too, because - according to the old info for LPN-RN Advanced Placement transfer students, it seems that one has to have an IV Cert class. I was looking at the newest information, and it seems that if a person recieved his/her LPN at one of the local colleges (MSC, SKC, etc.), and he applies within 6 months of finishing, them this requirement is waived. Also, if one can show evidence of IV training in the curriculum, then this requirement is waived.
Here's the link:
Advanced Placement Admission Requirements for Graduates of Practical Nursing Programs within the Maricopa Community Colleges:
* Graduates of the Maricopa Skill Center Practical Nurse Program, the GWCC Fast Track Practical Nursing
Program, and the Southwest Skill Center Practical Nurse Program may enter the MCCD Nursing Program
Block 3 within six (6) months of PN program completion. When the PN graduate enters after 6 months of
program completion, the applicant is considered Advanced Placement and must apply under the requirements
of the LPN Applicant. A valid, current and unrestricted practical nurse license, LPN, is required.
Evidence of IV content in PN curriculum or course in IV Therapy and
