A career in nursing provides a wide variety of job opportunities. Nurses practice in many settings (hospitals, long term care facilities, community agencies, clinics, schools) and care for all age groups.
Barton offers 2 types of programs for people wanting to enter the field of nursing: Certificate in Practical Nursing (PN) and an Associates in Applied Science Degree in Nursing (ADN). A student completes the first two semesters of the program to earn a PN certificate and is eligible to take the NCLEX-PN® to become Licensed Practical Nurse. The graduate then can decide to continue their education or enter the work force.
When the LPN wants to continue their education they may apply for the second year of the nursing program, graduates will receive the Associate in Applied Science degree and is eligible to take the NCLEX-RN® to become a Registered Nurse.
Whether you are interested in becoming an LPN or an RN Barton Community College can meet your needs.
