Department of Nursing — Curriculum Code 3312
There is a growing demand for LPNs to provide care to individuals in a variety of health care settings. The LPN works in close collaboration with the RN and other members of the health care team in long-term care facilities, assisted living sites, and hospitals. A state-of-the-art, well-equipped nursing simulation laboratory is available at the Essex County College main campus to facilitate student learning. In addition, a multi-media computer laboratory is available to LPN students. Upon completion of the LPN academic certificate program, a student is eligible to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam to qualify for LPN licensure.
