Practical Nursing

Have you been searching for a practical nursing school in Oregon? Your search is over. Institute of Technology has a great practical nursing training program in Salem, Oregon. Our LPN classes teach you how to provide care and assist physicians in the diagnostic assessment of patients. Licensed practical nurses play a vital role as members of healthcare teams.

Through our nursing school, emphasis for the Practical Nursing training is placed on:

  • The nursing process
  • Universal precautions
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Disease process
  • Pharmacological approach to treating patients
  • The different stages of life and care

In addition, students engage in hands-on training involving electrocardiograms, laboratory tests, venipuncture, infusion therapy, and many specialized care procedures. This program equips graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the requirements of the Oregon State Board of Nursing to participate in the NCLEX-PN exam, leading to licensure as a practical nurse.

Once you become a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), you can pursue additional training to specialize in an area such as gerontology and pharmacology. Your duties as an LPN can vary depending on whether you work in a hospital, a nursing home, or in-home healthcare.
