LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing program has a challenging curriculum that prepares students to provide direct care for individuals in long-term care agencies, doctor’s clinics, home-health agencies, the armed services and other sites. This program includes lectures, discussions, demonstrations, laboratory practice and supervised clinical in
a variety of settings.
After successfully completing the Practical Nursing (PN) program, the graduate becomes eligible to apply to take the national licensing exam for Practical Nursing. If you pass the examination, you may work as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). As an LPN, you will work in the health care field under the direction of a Registered Nurse (RN).
The admissions requirements are the same for the Practical Nursing and the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) programs to support progression from one program into the next. Practical Nursing graduates are eligible to apply to the ADN program and continue their education to become an RN. Articulation of a PN graduate into the
nursing program will be based on seat availability.
MSTC’s Practical Nursing program is part of the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) system-wide curriculum and is identical to the first year of the Associate Degree Nursing program. The Practical Nursing program is approved by the Wisconsin Board of Nursing.
The Practical Nursing program is offered at the Wisconsin Rapids campus.
