The Practical Nursing curriculum prepares individuals with the knowledge and skills to provide nursing care to children and adults.
What you'll learn
Students will participate in assessment, planning, implementing, and evaluating nursing care.
Graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) which is required for practice as a Licensed Practical Nurse.
Employment opportunities include hospitals, rehabilitation/long-term care/home health facilities, clinics, and physician’s offices.
Only letter grades of “C” or higher in non-nursing courses and nursing (NUR) courses with a grade of “B” or higher will count toward completion of the Practical Nursing diploma.
