“Best program I have ever had the honor of being accepted into. Such supportive staff and well thought out teaching methods. I am so utterly grateful to have been introduced into the world of nursing by such amazing beacons of nursing sapience.” Rebecca Conrad, LPN, 2013 graduate of Knoedler School of PNE.
Becoming an LPN can be your final educational experience in nursing or it may be your first step in becoming an RN. Whatever your long term goals, Knoedler can be an important part in obtaining them.
KNOEDLER SCHOOL OF PRACTICAL NURSE EDUCATION
The Knoedler School of Practical Nurse Education is an 11-month program beginning every September. It is approved by the Ohio State Board of Nursing and accredited by Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges. It has been developed to prepare the student to perform basic nursing skills under the direction of a licensed physician or registered nurse. The program includes nursing theory, lab and planned clinical experience in a variety of health care settings. The lab now has an adult, pediatric and infant simulator to assist the student at increasing their critical thinking skills and confidence. Selected courses include Pharmacology and medication administration, Medical-Surgical Nursing, IV Therapy, Pediatrics and Obstetrics. Upon completion of the program, the student is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for certification as a licensed practical nurse. The license may be transferred to any state. The Ohio Board of Nursing may deny, suspend or revoke a license if an applicant has a criminal history. Successful completion of the program does not guarantee licensure.
Clinical sites include:
