LPN Program Details
Oakland Community College Highland Lakes Campus Department of Nursing offers a one-year Modified Career Ladder Practical Nursing Education (PNE) certificate at the Southfield Campus.The Associate Degree Nurse (ADN) program serves as the base for the PNE program. The program is designed to prepare graduates to give supervised direct nursing care in a variety of health care settings. Successful completion of the program requirements qualifies the students to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEXPN). Satisfactory achievement on this examination qualifies the graduates for licensure as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). Anyone who has been convicted of a felony may not be eligible for licensure.
The course of study combines education in the biological, behavioral and social sciences with instruction in the theory and practice of nursing. Graduates of the modified career ladder PNE program can apply for admission to the second year of the generic ADN program and complete the required courses for the ADN program in one additional year.
Students must first be admitted to the college and designate (PNE) as their curriculum. Registration in the nursing courses is possible only after the student is admitted to the nursing program through a selection process based on a system of priorities.
