There is a growing demand for LPNs to provide care to individuals in a variety of health care settings. The LPN works in close collaboration with the RN and other members of the health care team in long-term care facilities, assisted living sites, and hospitals. A state-of-the-art, well-equipped nursing simulation laboratory is available on campus to facilitate student learning. In addition, a multi-media computer laboratory is available to the students. Upon completion of the program, the student receives an academic certificate and is eligible to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam to qualify for LPN licensure. Is there educational mobility after completing the LPN program? The Essex County College Department of Nursing subscribes to the state articulation model for education mobility of nurses. LPN students can enter the RN program upon meeting the admission requirements of the Nursing: LPN Articulation Option A.A.S. Degree Program.
