Connecticut LPN School
Education for Connecticut LPNs
All programs offered online or through Connecticut LPN schools must contain at least 1,500 hours dedicated to overall nurse theory and practical training. In addition, a selected program must last for a minimum of 10 months in length. Within the program’s academic curriculum, at least 50% of classroom hours are be comprised of direct client care and observational experience, to be supervised by a qualified instructor.
Right now, there are about 10 accredited practical nurse programs available in Connecticut. These programs can be found in local hospitals, community colleges, and state colleges and universities. Students can either apply for admission into an associate, bachelor, or master degree program through one of these programs. Most coursework found in these programs contains both nurse and non-nurse classes. Some non-nurse curriculum may include: English Composition, Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Pharmacology for Families Across the Lifespan. On the other hand, more career-focused curriculum may include: Introduction to Nursing Practice, Family Health Nursing, Theoretical Foundation of Nursing, Fundamentals of Medical Surgical Nursing, and Nursing Management and Trends.
