LPN Program Details
The mission of the Practical Nursing Program is to prepare individuals for successful mastery of the competencies required of the practical nurse and for successful completion of the national licensure exam leading to licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Education of the practical nurse is characterized by its emphasis on clinical – practical experiences necessary to meet common nursing problems. The curriculum is based on concepts from the biological and behavioral sciences in a planned sequence of correlated theory and clinical experience. This is achieved through selected learning experiences progressing from simple to complex. These experiences are provided in order to offer the practical nurse student the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that are essential for the practice of practical nursing and for providing the foundation for continuing personal and professional growth and development. The Practical Nursing Program is a 12-month diploma program, which consists of a combination of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences. These experiences expose the student to the wide variety of tasks and responsibilities required of today's practical nurse. Upon completion of the program, the student is prepared to take the State Board of Nursing Exam, and may upon passing become a Licensed Practical Nurse.
