Historically, nurses have been at the forefront of the medical field, always willing to lend a caring hand during times of great need and change. Today is certainly no exception.
The goal of the Practical Nursing program is to educate students to become Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) so that they may perform a multitude of essential duties. LPNs provide basic bedside care, taking vital signs such as temperature, blood pressure, pulse and respiration. They monitor patients and report adverse reactions to medications and treatments. In addition, LPNs collect samples for testing, perform routine laboratory tests and provide a comfortable environment for the patient. Some LPNs can also supervise nursing assistant and aides.
Upon successful completion of the PN program, providing all requirements for graduation are met, the graduate will receive a diploma and will be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical/Vocational Nurses (NCLEX-PN) to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. Once this licensure is obtained, graduates can work in medical settings such as nursing care facilities, home health care centers, physicians offices and hospitals.
