Englewood, Ohio -- The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Adult Education Division’s new Registered Nurse Diploma Program is a 12-month, 50-week program consisting of classroom, theory, laboratory, and clinical experience.
Graduates of the RN Diploma Program will be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN Licensure Exam. Students who pass the exam will be prepared to work in various healthcare settings as a Registered Nurse.
MVCTC Superintendent, Dr. Nick Weldy, stated, “The Miami Valley Career Technology Center Adult Education Registered Nurse Diploma program is a project that the district has been working on for more than a year. This new opportunity will provide a bridge for those nurses with an LPN license to quickly and effectively obtain the education needed to become a registered nurse. In addition, it also provides an avenue for some of MVCTC’s high school healthcare students to be able to receive credit for LPN courses while still in high school and fast-track their ability to enroll in the registered nurse program shortly after graduation. It is an amazing opportunity for both MVCTC’s secondary and adult education healthcare students.”
The goals of the Adult Education Registered Nurse Diploma Program are:
Courses taught will include LPN to RN Transition, Introduction to Pharmacology, Nursing Informatics, Adult Nursing 1, 2, & 3, Pharmacology, Community Health Nursing, Maternal-Child Nursing, Nursing Care of the Child, Professional Transitions 1 & 2, Capstone/NCLEX Review, and Clinical Rotations.
MVCTC Adult Education Director of Nursing, Ms. Stephanie Benson, MSN, RN, shared, “The LPN to RN Diploma Program provides our alumni and current practicing LPNs the opportunity to further their educational and career goals in nursing. The program is designed to benefit current LPNs and help strengthen the nursing workforce in our community. I like to say that we are a small nursing program that leaves a big imprint in healthcare, and I am very excited to be a part of helping our students grow professionally.”
Classes will start on August 2, 2022, and will be held Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 am - 3:30 pm, except for clinical days.
Interested students must already hold an LPN license and attend an RN Diploma Program Information Session before applying. The Information Sessions are scheduled for Thursday, April 28, starting at 6:30 pm. Enrollment for the first RN Diploma Program will close at 5 pm on July 14, 2022.
