LPN Program Details

The purpose of the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology Practical Nursing Program is to prepare safe, entry level practical nurses that can provide quality care to clients in all settings where nursing takes place under the direction of the licensed professional nurse, physician or dentist.

At the completion of the program, the graduate practical nurse will recognize the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of the client and family. By utilizing the nursing process, the graduate will actively participate in assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating safe, competent nursing care. The program objectives state the entry level competencies, which are measured by the achievement of all level, theory and clinical objectives.

The Graduate Practical Nurse will:
