Within the provisions of the Illinois Nursing Act of 2007 and the Rules for the Administration of the Illinois Nursing Act of 2007, the practical nurse provides and manages care and participates in the teaching and research under the supervision of a registered nurse, licensed physician, dentist, or podiatrist. This one-year (three-semester) Advanced Certificate Program prepares individuals to function as members of the health care team. Practical nursing education correlates clinical experiences and theoretical knowledge for nursing, communications, biological and social sciences.
Individuals completing the practical nursing program meet the educational requirements for the NCLEX-PN exam to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Recognizing that graduates vary in ability and that changes occur in long and short term goals, the practical nursing curriculum includes nursing and general education courses which allow articulation for career advancement in the nursing field. Certified Nurse Assistants(C-N-A) actively employed are given credit for basic nursing skills.
Requirements for admission to the program are subject to change to the most recent program requirements. Please verify program requirements regularly. Students taking less than twelve credits are considered part-time. Financial aid does not cover the summer sessions.
