Unlike other LPN programs, students at Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing receive college credit for their courses. Graduates are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Exam for an LPN. Upon completion of the LPN program and required prerequisite courses, students are eligible for application for advanced placement in the RN program.
