Nursing is one of the most respected professions in the world. And Mercyhurst North East offers the most trusted and respected practical nursing program in the greater Erie area. With an experienced faculty and a strong reputation for producing highly qualified nurses, if you want to become a practical nurse, you'll want to choose MNE to make it happen.
This one-year certificate program prepares students for licensure as a licensed practical nurse (LPN). LPNs are vital members of healthcare teams, caring for the sick, injured, convalescent, and disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses. Through classroom work, use of the on-campus nursing facilities, and clinical rotation at area healthcare facilities, students are prepared to provide basic bedside care to patients. This includes taking vital signs, giving injections, administering medication and immunizations, carrying out therapeutic treatments, and performing other basic medical procedures. In addition to providing routine beside care, LPNs in nursing care facilities help evaluate residents’ needs, develop care plans, and supervise the care provided by nursing aides. In doctors’ offices and clinics, they also may make appointments, keep records, and perform other clerical duties. LPNs who work in private homes may prepare meals and teach family members simple nursing tasks.
