Practical Nurse

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are important members of the healthcare team. If you want to become an LPN, a good first step is to consider training. This means getting info on nursing programs. Dorsey Schools can help you get on your way. We offer a Practical Nurse training program. The PN training strives to expose students to the knowledge and skills needed to excel in this field. Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam. Upon successfully passing the NCLEX-PN exam, they may become licensed as a Practical Nurse. Licensure as a Practical Nurse is required for employment by the State of Michigan. Practical nursing programs are designed to teach their students about a variety of topics. These may include practical nurse skills and responsibilities, patient care, assist with patient education, and the supervision of unlicensed assistive personnel. Students will also likely be exposed to legal, ethical, moral, and cultural issues in current healthcare environment. Students in our nursing training program will be exposed to each of these topics.
