LPN Program Details
This program equips graduates with the knowledge and skill set to administer safe, ethical, patient-centered nursing care in traditional and alternative health care settings. The Practical Nurse (PN) role within the nursing process is taught through classroom learning, simulated client care and instructor-supervised clinical experiences in health care settings.
Graduates of the Practical Nurse program must pass the NCLEX examination to become licensed. Licensed practical nurses, (LPNs), provide direct patient care under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN), advanced practice nurse (APN), physician assistant (PA) or physician (MD). Potential employers include hospitals, long-term care facilities, health care clinics, schools, home health agencies and homes for special populations.
