The primary objective of the LPN Program is to prepare students for successful careers in the healthcare industry. A combination of coursework and clinical experiences are used to help nursing students work toward this goal. The program works to instill problem solving, critical thinking, and technical skills in all nursing students. Our holistic approach combines coursework with clinical practice to produce well rounded LPNs skilled in theory, safety, and ethical principals.
Students in the Practical Nursing program shall acquire the following
- Apply the holistic nursing process as a systematic problem solving method to provide therapeutic care to culturally diverse individuals, families, and groups.
- Adapt care in consideration of the client’s values, customs, culture, religion and/or beliefs.
- Communicate effectively using interpersonal skills combined with information technology.
- Incorporate evidence-based bio-psycho-social cultural and spiritual nursing principles in the provision of care to individual clients across the life span.

The LPN Program combines a humanistic theory and lecture with clinical practice. The program can be completed through day or evening classes and in as few as four 12 week terms. You’ll start with Fundamentals courses to build a solid foundation from which to further your education. From there, you’ll work through more advanced topics such as mental, maternal, and pediatric health. You’ll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to take the NCLEX-RN exam and to become a successful LPN.
Licensed Practical Nurses have the opportunity to work in hospitals, physician’s offices, residential care facilities, outpatient care centers, and a variety of other environments. You’ll work closely with patients and their families, registered nurses and doctors, administering care and furthering your real world education.
As the US population ages, the demand for LPNs is growing quickly and the opportunities for students to move into practical nursing positions are broad. Success in the LPN Program at Jersey College will allow you to fill the gap in the industry and to begin a fulfilling nursing career.
