LPN Program Details
The Hannibal Public School of Practical Nursing is a adult course designed to educate the practical nurse, a vital member of the health care team. A practical nurse works under the supervision of a licensed physician and/or registered nurse giving complete nursing care in stable nursing situations, and assists the professional nurse in caring for critically ill or injured patients for whom the more specialized knowledge and skills are needed.
After a 500 hour level introductory period which prepares the student for beginning nursing practice, the student practical nurse is rotated through a planned program of clinical and classroom instruction. The student is under the direct supervision and guidance of the nursing instructors of the Practical Nursing School during both the theoretical and clinical instruction.
The School of Practical Nursing is a department of the Hannibal Career & Technical Center. Clinical facilities are made possible by the cooperation with the Hannibal Clinic, Hannibal Regional Hospital, Beth Haven Nursing Home, Luther Manor Nursing Home, Maple Lawn Nursing Home, and Marion & Ralls County Health Departments.
The Practical Nursing program has been approved as a vocational course by the Missouri State Department of Education since 1962.
