The Practical Nursing Program prepares the individual to assist in providing general nursing care requiring basic knowledge of the biological, physical, behavioral, psychological, and sociological sciences; and of nursing procedures that do not require the skills, judgment, and knowledge required of a registered nurse. This care is performed under the direction of a registered nurse, advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), licensed physician, or dentist. Intensive preparation for the NCLEX-PNĀ® Exam and transitioning from student to employee is provided.
