Welcome Note
from the President
Welcome to the Practical Nursing (PN) Program!  You have chosen an occupation that offers many opportunities for personal growth, service to others, and career satisfaction.

The nursing profession is both complex and unique because it serves the health needs of a rapidly changing society. The PN program at Delaware Institute of Health Sciences is somewhat distinctive
for three reasons:

  1. The curriculum must be revised periodically and updated continuously to keep up with ever-changing needs, NCLEX testing format and test matrix, accreditation standards, the Delaware Board of Nursing (BON) guidelines, and current trends and technology.
  2. Learning experiences are provided on campus and in selected clinical settings in the community under the supervision of licensed nursing and health professionals.
  3. All students are expected to be self directed learners, demonstrate professional and ethical behaviors expected of a Licensed Practical Nurse, gain computer competency prior to graduation, and comply with school and clinical affiliation policy statements and protocols.

Students enrolled at any Delaware Institute are required to comply with the policies, rules, and regulations governing student activities and conduct outlined in the current PN Student Handbook. The PN Student Handbook is updated annually and is developed to assist you with specific guidelines that are critical to your success in becoming a licensed professional. Please take time to read these rules and regulations carefully as you must comply with published guidelines.

The specific requirements herein have been developed to help you succeed in the PN Program and are designed to supplement the information provided in the classroom and in other publications. Such requirements are either set forth by professional organizations or by Delaware state regulatory agencies.

Information contained in this publication is subject to change without prior notice. Information contained herein shall not constitute a binding agreement on the part of Delaware Institute of Health Sciences or its administration.

Yours in health,
Maggie Sola-Rufai, BS

Education with emphasis on learning, community, responsibility, integrity, value, and quality nursing practice.
