The ACCESS to Nursing Program Presented By Lorain County Community College

An Accelerated LPN to RN Program

Registered nurses (RNs) provide care to patients, families and communities and also work to promote health, prevent disease and help patients cope with illness. Registered nurses may work in hospitals, physicians’ private offices, nursing homes, clinics, schools, work sites and in patients’ homes under the direction of such health professionals as physicians, dentists, podiatrists, optometrists and others.

When providing direct care, registered nurses observe, assess and record symptoms, reactions and progress; assist physicians during treatments and examinations; administer medications and assist in convalescence and rehabilitation.

Registered nurses also develop and manage nursing care plans; instruct patients and their families in proper care and help individuals and groups take steps to improve or maintain their health. Registered nurses are members of a profession and work diligently to uphold the standards of the profession.

Registered nurses are caring and compassionate; are able to accept responsibility and direct, delegate to and/or supervise others; are able to follow orders precisely and are able to determine when consultation is required. All nurses are patient advocates and health educators.

This program prepares graduates to function as registered nurses in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care agencies. Registered nurses promote health for clients through hygienic care; teaching; assessment of body systems; implementation of the nursing process, including treatment modalities offered by the physician and rehabilitative care. Upon completion of the program, the graduate is eligible to take the NCLEX examination for licensure as a registered nurse.
