LPN Program Details
Nursing—few career fields are as rewarding—or as challenging. Nurses must be able to utilize the latest medical technology at the direct and critical level of patient care. In addition to having knowledge, the best nurses are also responsible, compassionate, and ultimately motivated by a sincere desire to help people.
Our 11 month Practical Nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing and the South Dakota Board of Nursing. LATI's high standard of nursing education will prepare you to give excellent care to obstetrical, pediatric, medical, psychiatric, surgical and geriatric patients.
After the Practical Nursing program, you may choose to test for your LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or go on for a second year to become an RN (Registered Nurse). Called the "1+1" program, this arrangement (in cooperation with the University of South Dakota) will allow you to prepare for your RN exam without ever leaving the LATI campus!
