The following are the steps required to make a full application:

  2. One (1) copy of a personal composition of 150-250 words addressing your view of nursing and professional goals and why you wish to pursue a BSN degree.

  3. If currently enrolled, submit a current course schedule along with a plan for completing any remaining prerequisite coursework (official transcript evaluation will reflect future plans of completing required prerequisites).

  4. Two (2) reference forms from a recent employer or an educator.  References from relatives or personal friends will not be accepted.  Reference letters/forms become the property of LCN.

  5. $100 non-refundable fee payable to Lakeview College of Nursing. 

  6. Official transcripts from each individual college institution attended. Paper and electronic transcripts are accepted. International transcripts and credentials must be translated into English with letter grades through a foreign evaluation service.

  7. LPNs and RNs applying for admission must also submit a copy of their current Illinois nursing license.

  8. A naturalization certificate or a green card may be used as documentation for those born outside the United States. 

All documents submitted to Lakeview College of Nursing for admission or transfer purposes become the property of the College. Transcripts from other institutions will not be released to a student, nor will they be forwarded to other educational institutions or agencies unless specified by state or federal regulation.  A student needing copies of documents from other institutions must contact those institutions directly.
