NURSING PROGRAMS

PRACTICAL NURSING

Upon completion of the program and passing the licensing examination, the LPN can enter the workforce as a competent, skilled nurse. Practical nurses provide bedside nursing care at the direction of physicians and/or registered nurses. The practice of practical nursing is based on concepts from the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences. Each state has its own nurse practice act, so the scope of practice varies from state to state.

As a licensed professional, the LPN uses the nursing process for patient assessment, to contribute to the nursing diagnosis made by the RN and for planning, implementation, and evaluation in providing care.

LPNs are integral to nursing. They provide individualized care in a variety of healthcare settings such as acute care, long-term care, home health care, and other community healthcare agencies.

Practical nursing students benefit from extensive hands-on learning in one-year programs. Much of their preparation for nursing focuses on supervised clinical experiences with real clients in real health care facilities. This clinical component of education is one of the major strengths of the practical nursing program.

Because of the versatility in their study, LPNs are among the most patient-focused members of any health care team.

ASSOCIATES OF APPLIED SCIENCE IN NURSING

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree and prepares students to take the National Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX.RN). Graduates, who pass the NCLEX.RN, can enter the healthcare workforce as confident, competent, professional entry level registered nurses. The RN is highly skilled and educated and is prepared to function in the roles of provider of care, manager of care, and contributing member of a healthcare team. While at the bedside, the RN is accountable for decisions that impact the healthcare outcomes for the patient. The scope of the RN's practice is defined in the State of Missouri's Nurse Practice Act.

BEGINNING STUDENTS are applicants who meet all admission criteria and are not licensed practical nurses (LPN's) at the time of enrollment into this program.

Beginning students in this program are enrolled in general education courses, nursing theory courses, and clinical practice. The nursing courses begin with Foundations courses that introduce students to the practice of nursing, nursing theories, legal and ethical issues in nursing, and basic concepts of patient care. Students then advance through nursing courses that include more complex concepts in patient care and specialty nursing areas such as mental health, maternal-child nursing and care of pediatric patients.
