Practical Nurses (LPN’s) deal with people: sick, injured, and well. They work closely with the patient at the bedside under the supervision of a registered nurse, physician, dentist, or podiatrist. Practical nurses collect patient data, provide teaching, pass medications, and perform wound care.

Where You Could Go

Employment settings include hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, home health agencies, physicians’ offices, patient education facilities. Many students start in practical nursing and go on to earn an associate degree in nursing, to become an RN. The advantage is that they can work as an LPN while pursuing their associate degree.

NC State has over 40 agreements with four-year colleges and universities, to provide a smooth transition for students who want to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Through university partnerships, some four-year courses are also offered on the NC State campus or online.
 

Job Demand

The field of nursing is experiencing a shortfall and many practical nursing graduates are hired immediately.
 

Licensure

Both associate degree nursing and practical nursing programs consistently score above the national average on their licensure exams.
