Practical Nursing - Hybrid Option

The Practical Nursing program is designed to prepare qualified men and women to become, upon completion of the prescribed course of study and satisfactory writing of the National Council Licensure Examination PN (NCLEX-PN®), Licensed Practical Nurses. The introductory semester(s) offers instruction in orientation to nursing care of clients across the lifespan, nursing care of selected clients, and body structure and function. The remaining semesters of training provide instruction and clinical experience for clients experiencing an alteration in health, the pediatric client, the maternal/newborn client, and the psychiatric client. Intensive preparation for the NCLEX-PN® and transitioning from student to employee is provided in the final semester.

The hybrid option offers lecture online. However, the lab and clinical portions are face-to-face on campus or at one of our local healthcare facilities. Out of state clinical is not available. Testing is also required on campus.
