Licensed Practical Nurse Program

The School of Nursing at Holy Name Medical Center offers a 12-month Practical Nurse Program through two different schedules. In addition to a standard weekday program, Holy Name also has an evening and weekend schedule. Students attend classes at night and on Saturdays, allowing them to fit school around jobs or other obligations.

Holy Name's LPN graduates who obtain their LPN license can easily apply for advanced placement in the School's Registered Nurse Program. LPNs are nurses who provide basic nursing care under the supervision of a registered nurse in acute, intermediate, long-term and ambulatory healthcare facilities. They function as beginning practitioners within structured acute, intermediate, long-term and ambulatory healthcare facilities. Graduates hold positions throughout the healthcare industry - including Holy Name Medical Center - and make significant contributions to the nursing practice.
