Program Information

LPNs and RNs are often mistaken as the same profession - however, the two distinct jobs require different responsibilities and training procedures.

As an RN, you receive an associates in applied science degree after two years of studying. With an LPN certificate you will provide basic care to patients, such as checking blood pressure, determining heart rates, bathing patients and dressing injuries. You are also frequently responsible for completing paperwork and other administrative tasks. LPNs often serve as the primary point of contact with patients and their family members.

RNs have a slightly expanded role compared to LPNs. You may play out the administration of medication, perform complex diagnostic tests, and provide treatment and aftercare advice as part of the discharge process. As a registered nurse, you will graduate with a bachelor's or associate degree in nursing, whereas most LPNs will complete a certificate program from an accredited nursing college. In Pennsylvania, both positions require the successful completion of a National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) exam - for RNs, the NCLEX-RN® and for LPNs, the NCLEX-PN®.
