LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing (PN) program is approved by the Arkansas State Board of Nursing with regular evaluations to ensure a quality education in the nursing field. The program is designed to prepare
qualified individuals to meet community nursing needs and perform those functions which are generally recognized as being within the scope of practical nursing and where the skill of registered nursing is not required. Practical nursing is a career that offers many rewards including the satisfaction that comes from helping others. The practical nursing student is prepared for giving direct and primary nursing care under the immediate supervision of the instructor/clinical instructor, physicians, and staff nurses of the cooperating clinical facilities. Upon satisfactory completion of the Practical Nursing program, the student
is eligible to apply to take the Practical Nursing Licensure Exam.
To be considered for the Practical Nursing program, applicants must take the ACT, ASSET, COMPASS, or SAT exam. Applicants will be ranked for program acceptance based upon academic and other specific
