What is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)?

Licensed Practical Nurses are licensed by the state to provide routine patient care under the supervision of a registered nurse. The majority of LPN’s work in long-term care facilities, home care, rehabilitation centers, or hospice facilities. Our Practical Nursing program can take as few as 16 months to complete. Eligible graduates of the program may sit for the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health NCLEX-PN Examination for licensure.

Program Overview

A Licensed Practical Nurse is a contributing member of the healthcare team. Under the direction of Registered Nurses, they provide basic bedside care, assist in evaluating the needs of the patients or clients, and monitor their condition. LPNs are responsible for data collection, including all aspects of physical assessments, prioritizing the implementation of therapeutic nursing measures, providing and delegating direct patient care, and assisting clients in the prevention and promotion of health. They provide care to the patient or client by assisting in their personal hygiene and providing comfort measures. An LPN is trained to utilize the nursing process and critical reasoning to provide care within the guidelines of the Nursing Practice Act, promoting patient safety at all times in diverse healthcare delivery settings.

Stone Academy’s Practical Nursing program combines classroom course work with clinical experiences in a variety of area facilities with diverse populations to prepare our future LPNs for entry-level positions in both acute and long-term care settings. Stone Academy’s PN classes offer the flexibility of a full-time day or part-time evening/Saturday program. Upon graduation, our students are eligible to sit for the Connecticut NCLEX-PN licensing examination. Prospective students interested in becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse must first attend an information session. Here you will learn about the application and acceptance process along with specific information regarding the schedules for upcoming PN classes.
