EDUCATION & CERTIFICATION

PROGRAM INFORMATION:

The Practical Nursing Program accepts applications during very specific times dependent upon the semester for which you are applying.

Regardless of the application period or program type, the nursing department will notify applicants via email beginning 4 weeks (or one month) after the application deadline.

VIEW “MINIMUM ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS” FOR INFORMATION FOR EACH NURSING PROGRAM TYPE.

LPN to ADN Mobility

Summer application cycle includes NUR209, beginning summer semester, and NUR211, beginning fall semester. NUR209 is only taught during the summer semester.

STRENGTHS

COMPASSION

Having compassion and empathy for your patients is important in this line of work. Many times you will be working with patients who are undergoing a great deal of physical and emotional stress.

DETAIL ORIENTED

Keeping accurate track of details is a critical skill for any job that involves caring for patients, and this holds true for practical nurses. Delivering accurate care at the correct time is critical to the patients’ health.

INTERPERSONAL & COMMUNICATION SKILLS

In a Practical Nurse job, you will need to have good communication skills. The job will require interacting with your patients and being able to communicate with them so that you can understand their needs.

PATIENCE

In this career, your job is to work with sick and injured people. This may mean they move slowly and need your help with basic tasks. This may mean they have dementia and are unable to communicate meaningfully with you.

PHYSICAL STRENGTH & STAMINA

Because practical nurses work so closely with patients, they are often called upon to help patients move from their bed to a wheelchair, to reposition patients as their bedclothes are being changed, or to help them with bathing and getting dressed.
