LPN Program Details
The Vocational Nursing Program is a full-time one year program. It is also designed to allow students to transition from Licensed Vocational Nursing Program to the Associate Degree Nursing Program (A.D.N.). After completing the one-year program, LVN graduates who have completed all A.D.N. prerequisites are eligible to apply to the A.D.N. program (to become a Registered Nurse).
The college admits students into the Vocational Nursing Program twice a year in January and June. Other pre-requisites include Biology - 60 lecture, pharmacology (VN225/A.D.N. 225), and Transitions to Vocational Nursing 220/220L. Many of these sections are offered both on-line and on campus. VN240 Mental Health class is not a pre-requisite, but highly recommended to complete while finishing other pre-requisite courses.
Students who are certified nursing assistants (C.N.A.) or students who successfully complete VN215/215L Fundamentals of Nursing course have met one of the prerequisites on the way to applying to the VN program. At the completion of the VN program, the graduate is qualified to take the national council licensing examination for vocational-practical nursing (NCLEX-VN/PN).
