LPN Program Details
Kishwaukee College’s Practical Nursing Program is part of the RN ladder program. The Practical Nursing program (PN) admits up to twenty (20) students each summer from students who have completed the first two semesters of Nursing Curriculum 258. All applications are evaluated without discrimination with regard to age, race, sex, creed, national origin or disability. Official documentation of completion of all admission criteria must be received before the applicant will be considered for admission.
Practical Nursing is governed by the State of Illinois Nursing Act of 1987. The program curriculum for Practical Nursing can be an endpoint for the student, or can be utilized as the first year towards an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing at Kishwaukee College. Because of the nature of the Practical Nurse Program, students interested in a Practical Nursing Certificate must meet the admission and selection criteria and curriculum requirements for the first year of the Associate Degree Nursing Program. The additional five semester hours of course work (NUR 180 and NUR 192) required for the Practical Nursing Certificate will be offered in the summer provided there are eight or more students who express an interest in completing the certificate program.
Upon successful completion of the practical nursing course work the graduate is eligible to write the licensing examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). The certificate program prepares the graduate to assume the two established functions of the licensed practical nurse: (1) in non-complex nursing situations, to nurse the patient with a minimum of supervision; and (2) in complex nursing situations, to assist the registered nurse in a close working relationship. The licensed practical nurse provides nursing care under the supervision of a registered nurse or licensed physician. Requires 44 semester hours.
