Lake Land College welcomes 34 new practical nurses to the field

July 30, 2014
Thirty-four new practical nurses were welcomed to the nursing field at a recent pinning ceremony held at Lake Land College. 

The Practical Nursing Program is a three-consecutive-semester program that includes classroom, skills laboratory and clinical experience in various healthcare agencies. Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate may apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN). Upon successful completion of the NCLEX-PN, the graduate may apply for PN licensure. 

As a practical nurse, students are equipped to work in a variety of health care settings. Through the program, students review human anatomy and physiology, concept-based critical thinking skills for healthcare professionals, health promotion and maintenance, and disease prevention and care.
