ADN Program Details
The Associate Degree Nursing program prepares safe, qualified nursing graduates who meet the requirements for beginning practitioners. Parkland graduates are known for their excellent technical skills and their outstanding problem-solving and decision-making skills. We offer some Nursing classes in a hybrid format (combining campus-based and online delivery), as well as in the evenings; however, the program cannot be taken entirely online. You’ll practice in state-of-the-art clinical facilities, computer labs, and classrooms as well. You may work with computerized manikins that react like humans in a safe setting, and enjoy clinical practicums throughout the Champaign-Urbana area. Our faculty are experienced experts, current in their clinical practice, who have high standards and care a great deal about each student and his or her success. Our graduate outcomes on State Board exams exceed state and national norms.
LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing certificate program at Parkland prepares you for entry-level work as a Licensed Practical Nurse upon completion of the program and the appropriate state board examination. You'll study in a newly renovated 20,000 sq. foot facility featuring a simulated hospital and clinical area as well as a state-of-the-art Human Simulator. Classrooms are spacious and designed to be multifunctional. The faculty in the PN program are professionals dedicated to promoting the success of a diverse student population. Complete the PN program in 9-12 months of full-time study (once admitted to the program). Program completion does not guarantee licensure.
After successfully completing the PN program, you may apply to sit for the State Board Examination or NCLEX-PN. There are some conditions that may disqualify a student from state licensure; additionally, a background check may be required by clinical community partners upon submission of your application for licensure.
