LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing Program prepares the individual to assist in providing general nursing care requiring basic knowledge of the biological, physical, behavioral, psychological, and sociological sciences; and of nursing procedures which do not require the substantial skills, judgment, and knowledge required of a registered nurse. This care is performed under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician, or dentist. The graduate of the program functions as a provider of care, a member of a profession, and a manger as defined in the Mississippi Competency Model 1997.
Two options are available: Generic Option and Part-time Option. Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN®). Licensing of practical nurses is regulated by the Mississippi Board of Nursing. Conviction of a misdemeanor or felony offense may be grounds for refusal by the Board to issue a license.
This program is accredited by the Mississippi State Board for Community and Junior Colleges, 3825 Ridgewood Road, Jackson, MS 39211, Phone (601) 432.6518.
