Practical Nursing Program
The PN Program will not be accepting applications for 2018 and possibly 2019 (application deadline dates March 1, 2018, and March 1, 2019). We apologize for the inconvenience. Please direct questions or requests for more information to the Nursing Department at (702) 651-5986.
Students pursuing our Certificate of Achievement in Practical Nursing will benefit from an innovative curriculum, state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment, hands-on learning, and clinical rotations through a variety of health care settings. The Practical Nursing Program also has a certificate that allows for military medics and corpsmen to bridge from medic/corpsman to practical nurse.
The program is fully approved by the Nevada State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN), a requirement for state licensure.
Practical Nurses enjoy careers in physicians' offices, hospitals, outpatient clinics, long-term care settings, and home health care.
