RN programs provide students with the education and training necessary to qualify for licensure as a registered nurse and are offered as part of either an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree program.

 

LPN programs provide students with the education and training necessary to qualify for licensure as a practical nurse.  Practical nurses work under the direction and supervision of a registered nurse or physician.

 

Refresher programs consist of classroom and clinical training for RNs and LPNs who have not practiced for 5 or more years.  Other nurses may elect to take a refresher course when transitioning from a non-patient care role to direct patient care.
