LPN Program Details
Practical nurses care for patients at a essential level; they provide simple nursing care for patients experiencing common, well-defined health problems in settings like residential care facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, doctors’ offices and clinics, or home health care. The Carrington College Practical Nursing certificate program prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN), and for entry-level employment under the guidance of a registered nurse or licensed physician.
Our Practical Nursing program can provide students the hands-on nursing experience they need to help them succeed in their career as a practical nurse (also known as a vocational nurse in some states). If you’re trying to find a nursing school, you should consider a Carrington College Practical Nursing education because:
-Our program combines academic and clinical training which prepares students for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN)
-Our knowledgeable, passionate instructors prepare students for the real-world challenges they may face
Students who study our Practical Nursing certificate should leave Carrington College with the skills and knowledge to provide basic bedside care to patients; they will be able to assist patients who need help with eating, bathing, dressing, and with personal hygiene. They can learn how to measure and record patients’ vital signs, to prepare and give injections, to dress wounds, and collect samples for testing.
Our practical nurse training provides graduates with a foundation for the continued learning necessary for success as a practical nurse. Once students successfully complete the Carrington College Practical Nursing certificate program, they should have the skills and the confidence to:
-Demonstrate their academic readiness to take the NCLEX-PN exam
