LPN Programs in Virginia

Virginia is a state that uses the Commonwealth Competencies. This is a means to measure the knowledge and skills of employees; their career advancement; and the related pay structure. A licensed practical nurse is under the Pay Stub 3 umbrella category. Under category 3, the least amount of salary is $23,999 while the higher end is at $49,255. Metro areas such as Danville, Richmond and Winchester have the highest median salaries. These earnings increase or decrease depending on the LPN’s work experience, work shift, employer and current location.

If you wish to begin working as an LPN, then it is time for you to scout for the approved LPN schools. Here is a description of three colleges to get you started:

Germanna Community College

This public, two-year community college is situated in Locust Grove, VA and was established in 1970. GCC is a Virginia Community College System member. The college offers a wide array of programs and degrees in different areas of study. They also offer hybrid, online and interactive courses.

GCC’s LPN program is offered at the Locust Grove campus as well as the Eastern View High School located in Culpeper. The program is a result of the Germanna Community College, Culpepe rCounty Public Schools and Culpeper Regional Hospital partnership. It is a two-year program that awards a PN certificate as well as NCLEX-PN eligibility.

Viriginia Western Community College

VWCC is a two-year college chartered in 1966. This is the third biggest college in the VA Community College System. It is operating under the policies that were set by the Virginia Western Community College Board and the State Board for Community Colleges. The Southwest Roanoke campus spreads across 70 acres with a yearly average enrollment of 9,000 students.

VWCC’s LPN program is a certificate awarding curriculum that is designed to prepare a student for the LPN career.

Wytheville Community College

Also known as WCC, this two-year, public community college is located in Wytheville. Established in 1963, the college has long provided programs and degrees focusing on developmental courses, cooperative education, continuing education and workforce development. The college also offers distance learning.

Attendance is a huge issue at WCC. Missing a class compromises the student’s learning process and so if the absence is more than twice the number of the actual classes each week, then the student may fail his program.

For the LPN program, a student is required to have a final grade that is - not lower than C for his BIO 141-142 and NUR prefix. It takes less than two years to finish this program

Wytheville Community College has one graduation each year and this is held every month of May. So if you are able to accomplish all the prerequisites of your LPN program and are able to submit an application for graduation, then you are set to receive your certificate for your accomplishment of a non-degree curriculum.
