Licensed Practical Nursing

Licensed Practical Nursing


Licensed ptractical nurses (LPN’s) help care for the sick, injured and well people of all ages.  Students will work closely with patients in many health care settings.

Here's the Truth

There is a rumor going around that licensed practical nurses are being phased out of health care.  That is absolutely false.  The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services expects LPN’s positions to grow 17.4% over the next couple of years.  Many LPN’s use it as a stepping stone to becoming an RN.  100% of the graduates of the Sandusky Career Center School of Practical Nursing have positions in nursing or return to school within six months of graduation.

What sets us apart from other schools?

  • Clinical or caring for patients and residents begin three weeks after starting the program in a variety of settings.
  • Start in January and in 44 weeks or just before Thanksgiving you will finish and be ready to graduate.
  • The final quarter or Capstone, you work along side of a nurse for fifty hours as you prepare for graduation and the transition to your career.
  • Your tution includes the cost of your nursing license and NCLEX-PN examination.
  • Live review at the school to prepare you to pass the NCLEX-PN.
  • After graduation you can continue your education (if you meet admission requirments) and in one year become an RN.  Think of it as a  1 + 1 = RN.
