River Valley Community College is developing a new program to train licensed practical nurses.
The LPN program would be offered at the Lebanon and Keene campuses, starting in January, if approved by the state’s Board of Nursing.
In 2018, there were about 1,200 openings for LPNs, according to the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security.
Licensed practical nurses work under the supervision of physicians and registered nurses. They can collect patient data and provide some treatment.
