Practical Nursing Program (LPN)

Practical Nursing Program

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are an integral and vital part of the health care team. LPNs provide nursing care to individuals and groups in a variety of settings. Such settings include but are not limited to hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, physician offices, schools, clinics, hospice care centers, home care agencies, mental health and substance abuse treatment centers, medical durable goods suppliers, and dialysis clinics. LPN duties may include medication administration, initiation, administration, and maintenance of IV fluids, total hygiene care of individuals, obtaining and monitoring vital signs, obtaining laboratory specimens, assisting in the performance of testing, patient teaching, and communication with the health care team verbally and through written and computer documentation. A genuine interest in helping others is important to becoming a successful LPN.

Additional program requirements include passing a random drug test, completing a physical exam with a record of required immunizations before assignment to clinical sites, and the ability to withstand the physical rigors of the program. A fair but strict attendance policy is enforced.

  1. Foundations of Nursing Practice
  2. Nursing I, II, III
  3. Therapeutic Management I, II, III

Clinical experiences include acute and long-term care, rehabilitation, and community health sites. Occasional evening and weekend clinics may be scheduled. Graduates of the program meet the Ohio Board of Nursing requirements for eligibility to take the NCLEX-PN exam.
