The Practical Nursing Program is a twelve month adult education program. The pre-entrance exam is given in January of each year to qualify for the August entry. The curriculum consists of systematically organized classroom instruction, laboratory practice and clinical experience. Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will receive a certificate of completion which deems them eligible to take the NCLEX-PN for licensure.

The Ralph R. Willis Career and Technical Center School of Practical Nursing is offered at the Ralph R.Willis Career Center and sponsored by the Logan County Board of Education through cooperation with the West Virginia Division of Vocational and Adult Education. The nursing program is accredited by the West Virginia State Board of Examiners for Licensed Practical Nurses and seeks to conform to all written requirements and policies of the West Virginia State Board of Examiners for Practical Nursing and the West Virginia Division of Vocational and Adult Education.

The nursing program is affiliated with Logan Regional Medical Center, WV Health Systems, Genesis Eldercare/Logan Center, Trinity Health Care, Highland Hospital, Logan-Mingo Mental Health, Dignity Hospice, Logan Hematology/Oncology, WV-Dialysis and other clinical facilities. 

The goal of the faculty is to assist you in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary for safe, competent nursing practice. Your responsibilities include studying, learning and applying the knowledge and skills that are offered to you. As a student of the LPN program, it is also your responsibility to conduct yourself in a professional manner and to be accountable for your actions. One of your primary responsibilities is to know and follow all policies of the nursing program.

Program of Study Description:
Licensed practical nurses (LPNs) provide basic nursing care. They work under the direction of registered nurses and doctors. Licensed practical nurses work in many settings, including nursing homes and extended care facilities, hospitals, physicians' offices, and private homes. The program also offers the opportunity to acquire a certificate that is recognized by the West Virginia Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification (OHFLAC). This will allow a practical nursing student to take the certified nursing assistant exam and practicum at the end of 0601 Practical Nursing I. http://www.wvdhhr.org/ohflac/NA/Education.aspx. It is highly recommended that all postsecondary students planning to complete a Health Science Education program take 0714, Introduction to Health Care, as a prerequisite. Once successfully completed, the core does not need to be repeated at any instructional level. Therefore, secondary level students who have successfully completed a Health Science Education program do not need this prerequisite course.


*Note: Students entering the Practical Nursing programs should have a current CPR/AED for Health Care Provider or Professional Rescuer and First Aid certifications.


**This curriculum is designed to prepare students for employment as licensed practical nurses. The school must be approved by the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Practical Nursing, in order for graduates to meet eligibility requirements to take the examination for licensure in the state of West Virginia.


*Any Practical Nursing Module 1 through 6 can be integrated throughout this course. Note: A minimum course completion score of 80% is required to progress to next course.
