The school stands out from many others of its kind in the area by providing clinical rotations for LPN students, according to Thomas Eastwick, college president.Special to NJ.com  Area institutions are easing the path to the nursing profession, which is in high demand, with programs such as Eastwick College's accelerated Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program and a nursing program at Eastern International College that offers an associate degree in nursing. Students can complete the  Licensed Practical Nursing program at Eastwick College in 12 months through the day schedule, and 21 months through the evening schedule, said Thomas Eastwick, president of Eastwick College. "When you consider that the average salary for an LPN in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area was $53,850 as of last May, that's an incredible opportunity for a year's worth of studies," he said. Prospective LPN students at Eastwick College are not required to have previous medical experience, but must take an entrance exam that tests knowledge in math, reading and writing, according to Eastwick. The LPN program at Eastwick College covers skills that include vital signs, ambulation and transfer assistance of patients, physical assessment, wound care, tracheostomy care, ostomy management, intravenous therapy, catheterization and medication administration.Special to NJ.com  "Our nursing program fully prepares students to begin careers as licensed practical nurses after they pass their National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN)," he said. "We stand out from many other nursing schools in the area by providing clinical rotations for our LPN students." Before nursing students take their NCLEX, they must complete a set amount of clinical rotation hours, and often may end up on long waiting lists to get their clinicals, Eastwick said. "We remove this obstacle by guaranteeing students a clinical spot so they don't spend months waiting to start their career as a nurse," he said. Eastwick said the school's LPN graduates go on to work in locations such as physicians' offices, hospitals, and residential and long-term care facilities. They work under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician.
