School of Practical Nursing

Licensed practical nurses (LPN’s) help care for the sick, injured and well people of all ages.  Students will work closely with patients in many health care settings.  The course of study is daytime and is 1 year (44 weeks) of full-time study.  The program integrates class room study and clinical hands-on nursing.  Within about 3 weeks of starting the program, you are caring for patients in a variety of health care settings.


Students might receive advanced standing if they have previous college credit and therefore decrease the number of courses you would need to take. Articulation agreements are in place at Lorain County Community College and Firelands Regional Medical Center School of Nursing, if graduates from Sandusky Career Center School of Practical Nursing choose to pursue their RN.


Classes for the practical nursing program begin only once a year - in January.  Applications are accepted year round.  If applications are received prior to September 30th, they will be considered for the January class.  Download the application and mail it in today.


The next full-time class will begin January 3, 2018.
