This program prepares students for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). Students must pass the exam to be employed as a Practical Nurse.
The Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program is designed to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to provide safe, direct care for clients in various healthcare settings. While in the program, students will study a comprehensive curriculum ranging from anatomy & physiology, pharmacology, fundamentals of nursing, and more. Our goal is to position students to provide high-quality patient care to a diverse clientele. Students will learn how to monitor patient health by checking blood pressure, body temperature, and other vital signs. They will learn how to provide basic care and comfort, identify and communicate patient concerns, document patient care, and maintain patient health records.

Health Record Requirements

Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) - must have received 2 vaccines
Tetanus or Tdap - vaccine must not be older than 10 years or expire during enrollment
Hepatitis B: provide proof of a 3-shot vaccination series or titer test indicating immunity
Tuberculosis (TB) Screening
Students must receive a 2-Step Mantoux Tuberculin skin test. The injection and reading must be documented by the healthcare professional providing the service. If you have tested positive in the past, a chest x-ray needs to be completed with negative results documented by the healthcare professional providing the service.
ALL TB screening documentation must be submitted to Student Services prior to attending new student orientation.
Influenza (Flu) Vaccination
Students must receive the seasonal flu shot and provide proof of the immunization to Student Services by the instructor-provided deadline. This should be completed no earlier than the Fall of the same enrollment year so as to receive the newest available vaccination.
Students who wish to enroll in the Licensed Practical Nurse program must first successfully complete a State Tested Nurse Aid/Assistant training program (minimum 75-hour course). The STNA program provides fundamental healthcare training and exposes students to normal situations encountered in the healthcare environment. Students who may be uncertain about a career in healthcare benefit from the short-term commitment and smaller investment the STNA program provides. This prerequisite is intentional to allow students to experience the realities of a career in healthcare before they make the commitment and investment required of the Licensed Practical Nurse program.
Note: Eastland-Fairfield will offer a State Tested Nurse Assistant class (at an additional cost) prior to the start of the Licensed Practical Nurse program for those who need it. Please visit our STNA program webpage for additional information.
Certified Nurse Assistant or Certified Medical Assistant credentials can be used to meet the STNA requirement.
