Licensed practical nurses play a pivotal role on the healthcare team. Working under the supervision of doctors and nurses, LPNs serve as caregivers and contribute to the treatment plan for patients in numerous areas of the healthcare field. The Licensed Practical Nursing diploma* at Bryant & Stratton College provides students the opportunity to continue their education with the Nursing associate degree, as they are eligible to transfer credits from the LPN diploma to the Nursing degree program upon passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Licensed Practical /Vocational Nurses (NCLEX-PN) exam and possessing a Practical Nursing license.
Through classroom and clinical experience, students are prepared to become licensed practical nurses. Licensed Practical Nurse graduates provide care to their patients in a variety of healthcare environments, including physicians’ offices, clinics, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers, and home healthcare settings.
