LPN Program Details
The purpose of the program is to prepare men and women for the role of the Practical Nurse competent to practice under the supervision of a Registered Nurse, Physician or Licensed Dentist. Graduates of the program receive a certificate of proficiency for Practical Nursing which meets the educational requirement necessary to apply for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing licensure examination for the Practical Nurse. A Board of Nursing may, at its discretion, refuse to accept the licensure application of any person who has been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor or has charges pending on such issues.
To be considered for the Practical Nursing program, applicants must complete all testing, meet the minimum requirements, and submit all required paperwork by June 1st each year. Incomplete admission packets will not be considered for admission. Students are allowed to have pre-requisite courses in progress at the time of application. All pre-requisites must be completed with the required grade prior to final acceptance. Any work in progress will not be used in scoring the applicant’s overall GPA.
