Our practical nursing program at Sumner College is a 50 week diploma program designed to develop nurses for a variety of healthcare settings, while providing them the knowledge of issues shaping nursing and today’s healthcare workforce. Licensed practical nurses (LPN) work in many different areas in healthcare including nursing homes, extended care facilities, hospitals, clinics, and private home care. Licensed practical nurses work under the guidance of registered nurses and physicians, and some experienced LPNs may supervise nursing assistants and aides.
Our practical nursing program is approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) and accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).
Our practical nursing program focuses on promoting intellectual growth and development. At Sumner College, we work closely with students to provide an educational environment that is conducive to learning. It is our goal to educate well rounded nurses, who will one day make an impact on the workforce and become leaders in their field.
It is our responsibility to provide our students with the knowledge, skills, and ability needed to become successful in their chosen field. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be prepared to sit for the National Council Licensure examination (NCLEX-PN) for licensure as a practical nurse.
