The student is guided by expert nurse educators who have strong clinical and educational backgrounds.
The program has an outstanding record in licensure exam pass rates and job placement. Employers report great satisfaction with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the PNP graduate in assuming an entry level position. Program graduate surveys consistently reflect high satisfaction with the quality of instruction and preparation for practice. Graduates attribute their success in becoming an LPN to the mentorship of the program’s nurse educators, the rigorous curriculum, and the wide variety of clinical experiences.
