  • Shreveport-Bossier City, LA (1888PressRelease) August 27, 2016 - Remington College Shreveport Campus is now enrolling students in a new program designed to educate students interested in becoming licensed practical nurses (LPNs).

    The Associate of Science in Practical Nursing degree program combines classroom instruction, hands-on labs and clinical practice at various healthcare facilities throughout the Shreveport and Bossier City area. Classes are taught by instructors who bring real-world experience and years in the nursing field into the classroom to share with students.

    The program, comprised of seven 12-week quarters, is designed to prepare students for entry-level careers in practical nursing, whether it is working in a hospital, an assisted living facility, a doctor's office or another type of healthcare facility.1 The program also prepares students to take the NCLEX-PN exam, which is the exam required to become licensed as a practical nurse in Louisiana.2

    The curriculum includes courses in a variety of subjects, including:
    Medical-Surgical, Maternal/Child, Psychiatric and Geriatric Nursing
    Anatomy and Physiology
    Personal, Family and Community Health
    Leadership and Career Preparation
    Nutrition
    Pharmacology
    Microbiology

    "We know there's a real need for practical nurses in Louisiana," said Jerry Driskill, Remington College Shreveport Campus President. "We're launching this new program to both help meet the need for practical nurses in our state, as well as to help our students prepare for a rewarding career as an LPN."

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a growing baby-boomer population is expected to increase the need for healthcare and nursing services, increasing the demand for licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses by 16% from 2014 to 2024.3
