The Practical Nursing program is designed to provide students with knowledge and competencies to provide safe and evidence-based nursing care for practice in varied settings within the legal scope of practice for the licensed practical nurse. Students are instructed in the provision of nursing care for clients across the lifespan. Clinical experiences are provided at area hospitals and health care agencies in adult health, maternal/child, mental health, community and other areas for experiential development for the provision of safe nursing practice.
Few careers offer the versatility, satisfaction and longevity afforded by a nursing career. Students who have satisfactorily completed the program may sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX®-PN). The Practical Nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing. The program has a competitive admissions process.
