Testing open for County’s September Licensed Practical Nursing class

NEPTUNE, NJ – Are you looking for a more fulfilling career? Do you want to help those who are sick and in need? If so, you should consider applying for the Monmouth County Vocational School District’s Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program.

Testing is available now through www.mcvsd.org for the September 2015 class. Spots are limited and fill quickly, so make sure to take the test as soon as possible.

Those who do not pass the exam are invited to take the County’s Pre-Practical Nursing course which starts in January 2016. 

“I encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a nurse to take the exam. Even if you do not pass the exam, you can still take the Pre-Practical Nursing course,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the County’s Vocational School District. “Those who pass the Pre-Practical Nursing course will automatically be eligible to enroll in the next LPN class.”

The LPN program is comprised of studies and practical experiences to prepare students to meet the State requirements for licensure as a practical nurse in New Jersey.

“The LPN program is a staple in the community,” said Dana Schaed, Ed.D., Principal/Director of Adult Education. “Instructors and students give back to the community through volunteering and participating in clinical rounds all over the County.”

Approved by the New Jersey State Board of Nursing, the New Jersey State Department of Education and the Council on Occupation Education, graduates are eligible to take the Practical Nursing Licensure Examination for the State of New Jersey.

“The success rate of the County’s LPN program is nothing short of extraordinary,” said Burry. “Graduates have a 100 percent success rate of passing their exam to receive their license, while the national average is 60 percent.”

Graduates of the LPN program will take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to receive their license. The County’s LPN program has a 100 percent pass rate on the exam every year.

The program is located on 105 Neptune Blvd. The building is open from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm, Monday through Friday. For more information call 732-431-7245.
