Practical Nursing

PRACTICAL NURSING

Why choose the nursing program?

Nursing is a career that is in great demand and will be for the foreseeable future. The aging population of the "Baby Boomers", the aging nursing workforce, and the inability of nursing schools to educate sufficient numbers of students to fill the vacancies all create a need for more nurses. It is estimated that there are approximately 100,000 nursing openings currently in the United States.

The top reasons to become a nurse include:

  • Rewarding job: making a difference in people's lives every day
  • Flexible hours: shifts include days, evenings, nights; 8-hour and 12-hour shifts
  • Great pay: average starting salaries start around $25.00 per hour
  • Job security: nurses are in great demand
  • Diversity of work settings: acute care, long-term care, rehabilitation, public health, schools, clinics, military to name a few
  • Nursing can take you anywhere around the country and even around the world
  • Nursing is hard work, but it is very rewarding. Making a difference in someone's life is priceless.

New Admission and Curricular Changes Effective Spring 2015

The Ivy Tech Practical Nursing program will undergo curriculum and admission changes effective Spring 2015. More information can be found here.

Nursing Program


Technical Certificates:

The Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is an integral part of the health care team. The Practical Nursing program leads to a Technical Certificate and can be completed in approximately one year. The accredited program will prepare you to care for patients in a variety of health care settings, such as hospitals, convalescent centers, clinics, home care and physician offices. Graduates are eligible to apply to the state licensure exam (NCLEX-PN) to become a Licensed Practical Nurse.

The Practical Nursing program is a selective program. The nursing program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process. Contact your campus of interest below for more details.

The following information is for Fall 2014 ONLY. Spring 2015 updates coming soon!

Technical Certificate in Practical Nursing (minimum 45 credit hours)

The Technical Certificate in Practical Nursing can be earned on the way to acquiring the Associate of Applied Science degree. Many available jobs require advanced education beyond the high school diploma. Technical Certificate programs provide education in conceptual and technical skills for specific occupations. The program content is designed to develop competency in the comprehension of general and technical skills. Certificate programs require mastery of basic reading, writing, mathematical and quantitative skills.
