LPN Program Curriculum

The curriculum of Holy Name Medical Center School of Practical Nursing is developed in accordance with the philosophy and goals of the School and provides for the education of the student as a practical nurse and as a person. The curriculum design is based on a synthesis of constructs, definitions and propositions from Orem's self-care theory. The program extends over the period of one year. The nursing courses involve classroom instruction, as well as clinical experiences, which are supervised by the faculty of the School of Practical Nursing.

  1. Use the nursing process to give direct care to individuals and groups of patients with any type of well-defined health deviation or self-care requisite.
  2. Acquire and apply knowledge and skills based on theory and rationale, in administering care to the patient.
  3. Reinforce and review teaching plans for individuals and groups of clients using the teaching-learning process that has previously been developed.
  4. Establish professional interpersonal relationships/ communication with the patient, family and members of the healthcare team.
  5. Coordinate the care of individuals and groups of patients with health deviation or self-care requisites and meet their therapeutic self-care demands.
  6. Demonstrate an understanding of patients' rights, privacy, confidentiality and safety.
  7. Provide culturally sensitive nursing care that respects and is compatible with each patient's ethnicity.
  8. Follow the code of ethics for nurses and make appropriate ethical and legal decisions.
  9. Be analytical, critical and independent thinkers.
  10. Maintain or retain accountability for personal and professional growth.
  11. Function within the scope of standards of care for Licensed Practical Nurses.
