LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing diploma program is designed to prepare students to write the NCLEX-PN for licensure as practical nurses. The program prepares graduates to give competent nursing care. This is done through a selected number of academic and occupational courses providing a variety of techniques and materials necessary to assist the student in acquiring the needed knowledge and skills to give competent care. A variety of clinical experiences are planned so that theory and practice are integrated under the guidance of the clinical instructor. Program graduates receive a Practical Nursing diploma and have the qualifications of an entry-level practical nurse.
Students must take the NLN pre-admission PN test with a minimum 85th composite percentile result (nonrefundable fee required). Priority for selection will be given to the students with the highest NLN composite percentile scores. (NLN may be taken up to 3 times only).
