The goal of MCHP’s one year LPN program is to graduate professions who are well educated and who demonstrate the knowledge, abilities, and skills required to be a successful LPN. LPN education serves a vital role in the healthcare career ladder and will provide individuals the opportunity to work in a variety of health care settings, including long term care facilities, home health care, and much more.
The LPN curriculum is designed to develop and broaden critical thinking and communication skills, prepare students to enter the profession, and enhance their understanding of healthcare. At the end of the LPN program students are readily able to demonstrate the following learning outcomes:
- Evaluate patient care collaboratively as a member of the interprofessional healthcare team to justify the unique contributions of the LPN to a robust nursing workforce;
- Evaluate personal practices that promote self-fulfillment, professionalism, and accountability;
- Support dignity, integrity, self-determination, and personal growth of diverse patients, their families, and oneself to provide individualized, culturally appropriate, relationship-centered nursing care;
- Synthesize clinical judgment with consideration of cultural, cognitive, and physical needs to provide safe care to patients and their families across the lifespan;
- Evaluate diverse therapeutic communication techniques amongst patients, their families, and healthcare professionals.
- One year certificate program
- The LPN curriculum is 3 semesters or 5 terms in length. Each semester is comprised of two 8-week terms. Except for BIO 105, all the LPN courses are completed in 8-weeks. Academic policies are the same for courses that run 16-weeks or 8-weeks.
- Program cost is just under $18,000, billed over the course of the program
- Program is financial aid eligible and payment plans may be arranged
MCHP by the Numbers
The program is very interactive. It’s more than just sitting and taking in information; you are actually using it. I already feel very well prepared for when I go into nursing.
