Graduates are then eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Upon successful completion of the NCLEX-RN and licensure by the Georgia Board of Nursing, graduates are employable as registered nurses.
LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing diploma program is designed to prepare students to write the NCLEX-PN for licensure as practical nurses. The program prepares graduates to give competent nursing care. This is done through a selected number of academic and occupational courses providing a variety of techniques and materials necessary to assist the student in acquiring the needed knowledge and skills to give competent care. A variety of clinical experiences is planned so that theory and practice are integrated under the guidance of the clinical instructor.
A student must complete the entire program sequentially and pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to become licensed. According to the Georgia Board of LPN rules, as well as other state boards of nursing, a person may be denied the opportunity to take the licensure examination and/or may be denied licensure if the person has been convicted of a felony or any crime violating federal or state controlled substance laws or other grounds as specified by law.
