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.
