Practical Nursing (LPN)

Atlantic Technical Center

The Practical Nursing program prepares students to participate in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of nursing care in hospitals and extended care facilities.

Practical Nursing/ LPN students are required to participate in clinical experience. PN/LPN students are introduced to the clinical area early in the program. Theory and clinical procedures are integrated to reinforce learning.

Practical Nursing/LPN Training classes are offered full time days only.  Class offerings are determined by enrollment, as well as the availability of clinical sites and instructor availability.  In addition to lecture and laboratory instruction, clinical practice is required.  It is essential that Practical Nursing/LPN Training students have their own transportation to travel to the clinical sites.
