He is continuing his nursing career now at SGU by taking prerequisites required for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program we have here at SGU. Keep up the great job, Joe!
Presently, we are searching for more CNA and LPN students!
If you're interested in becoming a CNA, and you care about people, like to care for people, are compassionate, and would like a career in the health care field, we have a 6-week course held twice a semester, both fall and spring semesters for you. If you register early enough, you can choose which of the 2 sessions you'd like to take. And, we have one 6-week course in the summer. All you need to do is register during regular registration for the CNA course.
You must apply for the LPN program, however. The deadline to apply for the LPN program is January 30th, 2017, 4:00pm CST. If you're accepted into the program, you will start classes in the fall semester.
Our CNA Instructor is Rita Schneider, AA, RN.
Our LPN Instructors are: Melody Otte, MSN, and Briana Broschat, BSN.
The Director of our Nursing Dept. is DeAnn Eastman-Jansen, RN, BSN, MSN.
SGU Registration for the spring semester will start with Pre-Registration - for returning students only - on December 16th.
Regular Registration will start on Jan 3rd, 2017.
