  • Welcome

    The Practical Nursing Program (LPN), coordinated by the Health Sciences Department, offers a certificate in Practical Nursing. Graduates will be eligible to sit for the National Council of State Boards Licensure Examination for Practical Nurse (NCLEX-PN).

    The Practical Nursing Program (PNP) at LaGuardia Community College is in response to the growing need for skilled health care personnel who can provide care at the practical nursing level and are motivated to continue in the Nursing Profession. The Practical Nursing Program was approved in July 2004 by the New York State Education Department

    A forty-eight (48) credit, certificate-bearing program has been organized to be rigorous, but supportive of the adult-learners from diverse cultural and literacy experiences. Beginning Fall 2009, the Practical Nursing Certificate Program will provide students with the opportunity to complete the courses of study in ten (10) months after completing the pre-clinical core educational courses. By February 2010 following the graduation of students who entered March 2009 into the original 12 month program, the 12 month Practical Nurse Certificate Program should be completely phased out by February 2010 when the class graduates. The new tenth month program will admit students only once per year each Fall I semester.

    The program prepares men and women to function as practical nurses performing tasks and responsibilities within the framework of case-findings, health teaching, health counseling, provision of supportive and restorative care in healthcare facilities that offer chronic and acute care services.
