Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) provide nursing care to clients with a variety of health needs. LPNs work in a variety of healthcare settings as they work under the direction of registered nurses, physician assistants, doctors and dentists. MTECH’s LPN program will prepare you to function as an entry-level nurse. In this program you will receive both classroom theory and practical clinical experience.
Students who complete the Practical Nursing Program will receive a Certificate of Completion from MTECH, be prepared to take the NCLEX-PN Exam, and be prepared to work as a Licensed Practical Nurse.
