Helping LPN/LVN students reach their potential

In today’s complex care environment, preparing practice-ready nurses can be challenging. Nursing educators are balancing the need to produce LPN/LVN practice-ready nurses with the challenges of teaching a diverse population of students - all while accommodating varying study skill abilities and the need to avoid cognitive overload.

The urgency of the LPN/LVN shortage (estimated to reach 1.2 million by 2030) demands proven nursing education and remediation solutions that help prepare students for the Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) – and transition to real-world clinical practice. But preparing LPN/LVN students comes with its own set of considerations for deans and faculty of nursing programs as they try to keep pace.

Time-stretched LPN/LVN nursing students need structure and guidance along their learning path with paced adaptive assignments so misconceptions can be captured in real time. And while every student deserves equal access to learning tools that have proven outcomes, instructors need flexible options to teach courses based on their own unique teaching styles.

Improve student retention
The U.S. nursing program dropout rate is 20%. Keep students engaged with a personalized learning experience and simulations that enable Learn-By-Doing practice. Ensure consistency and continuity of learning through the LPN/LVN curriculum.
Appeal to diverse learners
Provide strong student support for the unique characteristics of LPN/LVN learners who juggle life responsibilities with school. Deliver content that appeals to diverse learning styles and helps ensure students comprehend and retain information.
Foster clinical judgment
Provide the building blocks of the Next Generation NCLEX-PN®, strengthen clinical judgment skills, and prepare students for real-world practice, ensuring they learn and understand the nursing process that forms the foundation of practice.
Ensure workforce readiness
Studies report that most new nurse graduates are not prepared for practice. Ensure students are workforce-ready by exposing them to the evidence-based learning platforms they’ll use in clinical practice.

How one LPN/LVN program boosted NCLEX scores and practice readiness

CiTi BOCES is crucial to the Oswego County, NY, local community, and in helping to respond to the severe local nursing labor shortage. In 2015, falling NCLEX® scores signaled that students were not prepared for the exam or clinical practice. That’s when they turned to the Lippincott® suite of learning solutions. Over just two years, CiTi BOCES improved its NCLEX pass rates from 65.22% to 95.83%.
