To help local employers fill a vital nursing workforce need, Herzing University is rolling out a new practical nursing diploma program at its Brookfield campus to train students to become licensed practical nurses (LPNs).
"There's an ongoing demand for nurses at every level," said Herzing-Brookfield Campus President Jarvis Racine. "Local healthcare employers continue to ask for help filling LPN, RN and nurse practitioner positions, among others. We're excited to provide another career-focused program in an in-demand field for Southeastern Wisconsin."
Herzing’s practical nursing curriculum is designed so that students who wish to advance their nursing education could enroll directly into the university's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. They can choose between several flexible learning options, including an accelerated BSN program and an LPN to BSN pathway.
Enrollment is currently open and classes begin September 5, 2018.
