LPN Program Details
The Arkansas State Board of Nursing approves the Practical Nursing program at Southeast Arkansas College with regular evaluations to ensure a quality program of education in the nursing field. Practical Nursing students are prepared for giving direct and primary nursing care under the immediate supervision of the clinical instructor, staff R.N., and/or physicians in the cooperating clinical facilities. Upon completion of the program, the student will be eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) for licensure as a practical nurse. Besides meeting the state minimum requirement for licensure, the curriculum also serves as a bridge program for students who want to continue their education in nursing or other allied health professions. Students who successfully complete the program can transfer up to fourteen (14) semester credit hours to a college or university.
Classes are admitted in August and January. Class size is limited; and all applicants are not accepted for participation.
All applicants will have an equal opportunity regardless of race, age, disability, sex, creed, religion, or nationality.
Applicants with special needs due to disability must make this fact known prior to admission, so that necessary accommodations can be made. Because of the nature of the profession, it may not always be possible to accommodate students with severe disabilities.
