Practical Nurses care for clients at all life stages across the continuum of care. Prepare yourself for a career that provides safe, knowledgeable & professional nursing care within a variety of health care settings.

In the Practical Nursing Program you will study from the same body of nursing knowledge as registered nurses (RNs) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) with a more focused approach in foundational knowledge, critical thinking, and clinical judgment appropriate to the role of a practical nurse. This program will provide you with the knowledge, skills, judgment, and abilities to contribute in all phases of care from prevention to acute treatment and management, to long term and palliative care.
