LPN Program Details
The health care industry is growing, and along with it is the need for qualified Practical Nurses. Whether in a hospital, extended care facility, or home health, employers look for skilled, compassionate people to handle one of the most important aspects of client care-bedside nursing. As a Practical Nurse, your primary role will be bedside nursing, assisting physicians and Registered Nurses in client care. You are an important part of the health care team and your skills have a direct effect on the client's health and well-being.
The program is offered as either 1 year full-time day or 2 year part-time evening classes. During the program, your studies will include both classroom and clinical experiences. Your classroom instruction will be enhanced by concurrent clinical experiences at Marietta Memorial Hospital, Selby General Hospital, Harmar Place, and Heartland of Marietta. You will also gain experience through observational time with home nursing, nursery schools, physicians' offices, and clinics.
