LPN Program Details
Practical Nurses are prepared to give basic patient care in structured situation under the supervision of a registered nurse or a physician. They are respected members of the nursing team, and as such participate in the nursing process. Practical nursing is a basic and necessary part of the field of nursing, and can be viewed as a life long nursing practice. Some may also view it as a stepping-stone to further their career, in either instance; it will require a life long commitment to learning.
Nursing education at Uintah Basin Applied Technology College incorporates practice of basic skills with scientific principles and nursing theory. The knowledge base has been organized according to body systems, from simple to the complex, with one concept building upon another. Students practice the application of the theory and principles they have learned, first in a simulated lab situation then in care facilities under the supervision of faculty members. Students not only learn to recognize their strengths and abilities, but to remain within the scope of their practice as prepared to function in a structured situation under the direction of a registered nurse, physician, or other primary health care provider.
