This is your opportunity to join the nation's second-largest health care group in one of the most in-demand health occupations in the country. Students are taught to assist with daily patient care, administer injections and medications, document a patient's condition, and help educate and give emotional support to patients. Anyone with a high school diploma or high school equivalency may apply. Upon completion of the LPN program, graduates are eligible to sit for the NYS Licensing Exam. A review of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is included at the end of the program.

Instructors: With over 40 years of collective experience in the health care industry, registered nurses Carol Vigliotti, Laura Yeomans, and Michele Caliva provide exceptional instruction and guidance for students in the LPN program.

A new career is closer than you think! It all starts by attending an informational Open House, offered every Thursday at 1 p.m. in Liverpool. From there, you're just a few steps away from the career you deserve.
