LPN Program Details
A one year Certificate program.
At Delta College, the student who declares a major in practical nursing first takes a series of prerequisite courses including Sciences, English, Math, Pharmacology, Medical Terminology, and Introduction to Nursing careers. These prerequisite courses prepare the practical nursing student for clinical course work. In clinical, after learning a basic foundation of nursing/medical theories, the student then learns to collect needed patient data and perform certain procedural skills and medication administration. The LPN program is approximately one year in length. The Delta College PN program is excellent at preparing students to sit for the LPN State Board Exam with an exceptionally high pass rate.
Once a student is out of school and has received their State Board of Nursing license to be a licensed Practical Nurse, he/she can work in a variety of settings such as acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, doctor/dentist office, and home health care. The PN assists physicians and Registered Nurses in the development and modification of patient care plans, performs basic tests, and assists with medications and other treatments.
