Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN)
The practical nurse program is sequential and will assist students to develop communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. Nursing courses are structured to promote student learning through lecture, laboratory, clinical, seminar, and practicum experiences. Learning opportunities are designed to apply practical nursing concepts in the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health for clients. Students learn to work collaboratively with other health team members in the health care delivery system.
Students who successfully complete the practical nurse program are qualified to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). The program is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing. In Ohio, licensure from the Ohio Board of Nursing is required for employment.
