This is your opportunity to join one of most in-demand health occupations in the country. As a Practical Nursing (PN) student, you will be challenged with a rigorous program of study that will prepare you for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). The Nursing faculty will cultivate an environment in which your success can be measured, validated and reproduced. With the foundations of knowledge and skills, you will become a well-qualified and safe practitioner. A review of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is included at the end of the program.
