The Practical Nurse Program has a full-time day and evening certificate program designed to prepare graduates to provide health care to clients of various ages in a variety of health care settings. The four semester full-time program is designed as a career path for entry-level patient care providers. Nursing assistants and patient care assistants can continue their education to become Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) after they successfully pass the program and licensing examination.
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 patients. 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.
