Practical Nurse 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, physicians 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 assisting others is an important component of becoming a successful LPN.

Additional requirements of the program include passing a random drug test, completion of a physical exam with a record of required immunizations prior to assignment to clinical sites, and the ability to withstand the physical rigors of the program. A fair but strict attendance policy is enforced during the 10 month program.

The curriculum includes:

  • Foundations of Nursing Practice
  • Nursing I, II, III
  • Therapeutic Management I, II, III
  • Anatomy & Physiology I, II
  • Laboratory and Clinical Experience

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.

Completion will provide the opportunity to receive 20 semester hours of credit in Allied Health at YSU and bridge into the RN programs at Eastern Gateway Community College and Kent State University.
