Practical Nursing

A licensed practical nurse (LPN) plays a pivotal role in healthcare in collaboration with a physician and/or registered nurse.  LPNs perform nursing care such as medication administration, data collection on patients, monitoring for changes in condition, vital sign checks, wound care and dressing changes, specimen collection, urinary catheter insertion and care, care of patients with ventilators and tracheostomies, ostomy site care and maintenance, CPR, and finger stick blood sugar testing. Proper charting and documentation of nursing care is also the LPN's responsibility. This important information ensures the ability of healthcare providers to make the most accurate diagnoses and recommendations.

Our Practical Nursing Program can be completed in 12 months.  We offer a traditional  schedule with “day” classes taken during the fall, spring and summer semesters.  For those looking for more flexibility, we offer the Flex PN Program which allows students to take classes in a variety of formats offered during the evenings and weekends.
