LPN Program Details
The practical nursing certificate program is designed for students who seek careers as licensed practical nurses. The program is designed to prepare graduates for the National Council Licensing Exam in Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN). There are pre-requisite courses that must be completed before a student can be accepted to the practical nursing program. Satisfactory completion of pre-requisite courses does not guarantee admission to the program.
The program requirements include:
MAT 099 Intermediate Algebra eligible (by college placement test)
SCI 101 General Biology I eligible ( by college placement test)
ENG 101 English Composition I (pre-requisite for SSI 112 General Psychology)
Due to limited space in these career education programs, nursing has competitive admission. The practical nursing certificate program currently admits 16-24 students to a full-time day program each September.
The Division of Nursing and Allied Health offers group information and advising sessions every month from August to May for students interested in the nursing programs. Advanced placement for Licensed Practical Nurses is available. Contact the Division of Nursing and Allied Health at 617 541 5313 for the times and locations of these meetings.
Advising suggestions for academic success:
Nursing students find nursing course work to be very challenging. Students are advised to complete required general education credits, to work part-time for full-time study, and to have support systems in place BEFORE entering a nursing program.
