Practical Nursing Program Application Information

Application period: July 1 – September 15

Late application period: November 1 – December 1

Program Information

The Practical Nursing Program is a one-year program (three semesters).  Prospective students must apply during the appropriate dates before the spring semester they wish to enter the program.  Graduates of this program will be eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) which is required to practice as a Licensed Practical Nurse.

Because of limited enrollment, students must complete an admissions process that determines which students will be accepted into the program.  Admission to the Practical Nursing Program is limited and based on a competitive ranking system. Students who have completed the application process and meet all requirements for admission will be placed in rank order according to the number of points accumulated.

After acceptance, students are required to submit health, immunization, and CPR documentation.  Students must consent to a criminal background check and urine drug screen prior to attending clinicals. Information about the required documentation is included in the acceptance packet and must be submitted to the Health Sciences Admissions/Retention Advisor prior to beginning the program.
