The goal of the Bilingual ESL Nursing Program (LPN) is to prepare ESL-level (English as a Second Language) students to enter the healthcare field as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). The program provides a unique learning environment where students learn the English medical terminology they will need to effectively communicate with medical personnel and patients. Students train in a specialized lab setting designed to emulate the conditions and procedures they will encounter when they start their careers. Skills covered include vital signs, physical assessment, and medication administration. The 18-month program includes 600 hours of ESL in addition to the curriculum and training necessary for graduates to take the NCLEX-PN licensing exam. Offered in: Eastwick College – Hackensack | Catalog Excerpt The objective of the Bilingual Licensed Practical Nursing Science program is to prepare students who speak English as a second language to enter the medical field in the capacity of an entry-level licensed practical nurse (LPN). Opportunities exist in the hospital setting, long-term care facilities, nursing homes, subacute facilities, school nursing, adult day health care centers, and home care. Upon successful completion of the program, Eastwick College will award the student a diploma in Bilingual Licensed Practical Nursing.  While we strive to provide students with the best tools to prepare for their careers, we cannot and do not guarantee employment.
