The faculty of Holy Name Medical Center Sister Claire Tynan School of Practical Nursing believes that our mission, in harmony with the philosophy of Holy Name Medical Center, is to promote respect for the worth and uniqueness of the individual learner and to create and maintain an environment in which the development of each student as a person and as a professional can take place.
The education of nurses has always been an integral aspect of the Holy Name Medical Center healthcare community. Holy Name Medical Center Sister Claire Tynan School of Nursing was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace in 1925. The School of Practical Nursing was opened in 1972. The School of Practical Nursing is a highly competitive 12-month practical nurse certificate program.
The School of Practical Nursing is accredited by the New Jersey Board of Nursing.
The academic year extends from early September for all prerequisite courses to Late December of the following year. The Practical Nursing courses are delivered over three semesters (15 weeks each). Students have recesses/scheduled vacations throughout the school year. The rigorous nursing curriculum courses are taught at the school, with some clinical affiliations at other health care facilities.
Qualified graduates of the Licensed Practical Nurse program may apply for articulation into the school's RN program or in a school of their choice.
The LPN-to-RN Pathway is a course bridging the knowledge and skills acquired through LPN education to professional nursing practice. The course is designed to facilitate successful entry of licensed practical nurses into the Holy Name Medical Center Sister Claire Tynan School of Nursing Registered Nurse Program. This pathway introduces the LPN-to-RN student into the role of a professional registered nurse, as it relates to communication, legal/ethical standards, nursing process, concept mapping, test-taking skills, critical thinking skills, medication calculation, health and physical assessment, and technology.
