Pursuing a college education can be a long, costly adventure that many people find impossible to fit into life. If you’re considering a career path in medical field, but don’t want to spend several more years in school before you can even find gainful employment, then becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) might be the right choice for you.
Practical nurses get to experience many of the same challenges and personal feelings of pride and purpose as other health care professionals, and the best part is, the education necessary is shorter than one might think.
How Long is the PN Program?
Although nursing programs will typically vary in length, at Athena Career Academy, our Practical Nursing course schedule can be completed in as little as one short year, for those who qualify. The course track at Athena Career Academy is conveniently broken up into both day and evening classes, making it easy to pursue an education around any busy life. Practical Nursing students enrolled in the day classes can complete the work and graduate in twelve short months.
Unfortunately, not every student can fit a traditional daytime class schedule into their busy life. Families, full-time jobs and other obligations don’t leave room for daytime nursing classes. Does this sound all too familiar? If so, know that Athena Career Academy offers convenient night classes to fit your schedule. Most students who enroll in the evening program course track will meet their Practical Nurse course requirements and graduate in about 16 short months.
What Can I Expect My PN Program Class Schedule to Look Like?
Whether students enroll in the day or evening Practical Nursing class schedule, the course schedule will look similar and will meet all of the Practical Nursing educational requirements for Ohio and Michigan. That’s great news for anyone attending Athena Career Academy. Once you graduate, you’ll have two states to consider for possible employment. Whether you enroll in the 12-month or 16-month course track, you can expect to take these classes:
- Anatomy & Physiology
- Fundamentals of Nursing
- IV Therapy
- Medical/Surgical Nursing
- Professional Transitions
