How many clinical hours is your LPN/LVN program?

  1. 0 I was just wondering if this was something that is all the same, or if it differed.

    Our LPN program is 1,350 hours with 671 being classroom hours and 679 being clinical hours.

    Our teachers keep bragging that our 679 clinical hours are way more than the community college's RN program and universities BSN program

    We have 412 clinical hours over a year. This is more than required by the board and more than some RN programs have in our area. 679 is impressive. I'm being nosy. But how many days do you have clinicals each week and how long do you stay? How long is your program?

    As for classroom hours, I have no idea how many we have.

    I'm in the part time program which is 18 months long but the 11 month program has the same amount of hours. I think they go 2 days a week, one 12 hour shift and one 8 hour shift.

    Since we are part time we go to clinicals every other weekend. On Saturdays we do a 12 hour and on Sundays we do an 8 hour.

    Then at the end we do a 6 week practicum out in the field full time

    As far as I remember, we were told it was 50% clinical hours. Our program is 1500 hours, so I'll say 750

    My LVN program had 1,500+ clock hours, which included 954 clinical hours and 600+ theory hours.

    My classmates and I attended three 8-hour clinical shifts per week for 12 months to fulfill this requirement.

    Not sure of an exact number of my clinicals hours, but we go Mon-Wed for 8 hours, for 9 months, the first 4 month of our program was classroom.
