Yes,it is true,that Camden County College is starting a LPN program.You must first obtain CNA certification.This is mandatory.My advice to find out more,see a counselor at the school. I find often going to a school when possible,and speaking to people is better than websites,which at times have not been updated.

here you go:

practical nursing program debuting this fall at ccc

camden county college is launching a program of study that will help alleviate the nursing shortage and provide a career ladder for certified nursing assistants and other prospective nurses-to-be.

although practical nursing programs are offered at the pre-college level by technical schools throughout the state, few collegiate programs exist in new jersey. ccc's program leading to a career certificate in practical nursing combines specialized courses in nursing with general higher education courses. students who complete the program qualify to take the national council licensure examination in practical nursing, the passing of which allows them to use the "licensed practical nurse" or "lpn" designation professionally.

after completing the program and receiving the lpn credential, students can matriculate at an advanced level into a program leading to a registered nurse or rn credential. these include the collaborative programs that ccc has with our lady of lourdes school of nursing and helene fuld school of nursing in camden county.

the cna-lpn-rn career ladder created by this program will, of course, help practicing cnas and others interested in nursing move closer to their professional goals. it also will help address the pervasive shortage of nursing care providers that has existed locally, regionally, nationally and internationally since the 1990s and will continue to be an issue through upcoming decades.

those enrolling in ccc's new lpn program will take the college's "certified nursing assistant" course first. enrollees who already are licensed cnas will be able to begin with subsequent classes in the curriculum.

studies for the practical nursing certificate will be offered on the college's camden city campus. the competitive program will admit a maximum of 30 students this fall and up to 40 in january.

the practical nursing certificate program is just one of the short-term study options created by ccc to serve the growing number of students who want to work in health-related careers while they work toward becoming registered nurses. in addition to it and the cna program, others include studies for becoming surgical technicians, home health aides and unlicensed assistive personnel.

for details about the practical nursing certificate program, contact the ccc advisement office at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4454. for details on the other programs, visit www.camdencc.edu. :lol2:
