Bachelor Degree Completion Programs
St. Louis Community College has developed strong partnerships with surrounding universities
that provide students with the opportunity to enroll at STLCC and the university simultaneously. This
dual admission program makes it possible for students to be jointly admitted to both
institutions. It provides nursing students at STLCC with the opportunity to seamlessly
complete a bachelor's degree through the university and provides students with access
to resources at both institutions.

STLCC and Webster University Nursing Dual Admission Program
LPN Bridge is a course for LPN’s to allow them to bridge into an associate degree
in the nursing program. Because LPN’s already have some of the same content that is
covered in the first year (the first two semesters) of the 4-semester nursing program,
the LPN Bridge course was developed to “bridge” or to cover the content from the first
year of the program that LPN’s have not had. Students take one bridge course, NUR:160,
and then they enter the third semester and finish along with the regular nursing students.

Employment of registered nurses is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026,
much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur for a number of
reasons, including an increased emphasis on preventive care; growing rates of chronic
conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and demand for healthcare services from
the baby-boom population, as they live longer and more active lives.
