Delaware LPN to RN/BSN Programs
While Delaware’s commitment to nursing excellence remains strong, there are currently no LPN to RN programs in the state. However, distance learning via online programs outside the state may be an option for Delaware LPNs looking to advance their careers and earn more money by becoming an RN. On average, RNs in the state earn $20,490 more annually than LPNs do, so seeking out a program is still a worthwhile endeavor.
