The LPN (Licensed Practical Nursing) diploma program at Mitchell Tech prepares graduates for entry into the nursing profession as a practical nurse. The program includes nursing and general education courses and can be completed in one calendar year. Mitchell Tech’s program does not require that you take your prerequisite before you start; enroll and take both simultaneously, saving you time.
This program focuses on the art and science of nursing, and is taught in classrooms, Mitchell Tech’s state-of-the-art high-fidelity medical simulation laboratory, and in clinical practice settings. Students attend class, skills labs and clinical simulation experiences on campus. Additionally, students participate in clinical learning experiences in various healthcare settings in surrounding communities and simulated clinical experiences under the guidance of nursing faculty. Clinical experiences provide students with the opportunity to apply nursing theory and critical thinking skills to patient care situations to help develop sound clinical judgment.
General Education courses in the nursing curriculum are offered in traditional and online format. Students may elect to complete general education courses prior to entering the program.
Graduates of the program find jobs in a variety of health care settings including long-term care facilities, home health care agencies, state and federal health-related facilities, private duty nursing, clinics, and office settings.
