Practical Nursing (LPN)
This program prepares students to care for ill, injured, convalescent, and disabled patients in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, private homes, long term care facilities, other medical care facilities, and even clinical research. Duties vary depending on each state’s nurse practice act (regulations). Students provide basic nursing care, perform assessments and administer care to clients under the direct supervision of physicians, dentists or registered nurses. They are responsible for supervision of Certified Nurse Aides, Certified Medication Aides, and Advanced Unlicensed Assistants.
Students who successfully complete this program have opportunities to become employed in the Moore, Norman, and Oklahoma City Metro health industries.
