LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing (PN) program at Anoka Technical College offers students two full-time program completion options. Students may either enroll as a PN Diploma -seeking student (53 credits) or a PN Associate of Applied Science degree-seeking student (63 credits). Both program options are designed to be completed in four semesters; currently there aren't any part-time options.
Anoka Technical College is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. The PN program is approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing, and is specifically designed to train graduates for the specialized field of Licensed Practical Nursing.
Licensed practical nurses specialize in delivering high quality nursing care to patients/clients in any stage of wellness or illness. Graduates in this field work closely with physicians, registered nurses, and other health care professionals to deliver highly skilled, delegated technical medical and nursing care. The LPN is a dynamic, vital member of the health team and is legally responsible to practice practical nursing within the Minnesota Nurse Practice Act and the Minnesota Board of Nursing Rules.
