Cherry Street, Hicksville, New York. The Licensed Practical Nursing Program originally licensed by the New York State Education Department in 1963, provides residents of Nassau County and surrounding communities with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills needed to gain entry-level employment in health career occupations. It maintains accreditation from the New York State Education Department and the NLNAC. Since its inception, the LPN Program has trained thousands of Licensed Practical Nurses. The Program is specifically designed for adult learners and has established and excellent reputation as a quality training institution. VEEB's Licensed Practical Nursing Program is currently the only LPN program in Nassau County. The VEEB program provides an essential path for a diverse population of adult learners to become contributing members in the County's health care delivery system. The LPN program operates as a tuition-based school. Eligible students qualify for Federal Education Grants (PELL) and/or guaranteed or subsidized student loans. After completing the first of three semesters, students are eligible to take Nursing Assistant Exam and thus qualify for entry-level employment while completing semesters two and three of the LPN program. Many of the students who work as nursing assistants, receive reimbursement from their employers or their unions for the LPN program.
