LPN Program Details
The Nursing Program adheres to a career-ladder concept in nursing education that provides upward mobility for students, without repetition of previous education and experience. Courses of study in Nursing consist of a two-semester, full-time Practical Nursing Program and a two-semester, full-time Associate Degree Nursing Program for PNs and GPN's.
Successful completion of the Practical Nursing course of study leads to a Certificate of Achievement, and eligibility to make application to take the examination for licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Completion of the Practical Nursing course of study does not assure admission into the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Students must apply for entry into this program and compete with all other applicants of that year. Since the Practical Nursing Program and the Associate Degree Nursing Program are separate programs, all individuals, including graduates of the Practical Nursing program at NCCC, must make formal application for consideration for entry into the Associate Degree Nursing Program.
