LPN Program Details
The Practical Nursing Program provides an educational curriculum leading to a technical certificate. The Arkansas State Board of Nursing approves the program of study. Upon graduation from the program, students are eligible to take the licensure exam for Practical Nurses.
The goal of the Practical Nursing program is to provide entry-level knowledge, skills, and employment skills for the graduate nurse. Specific entrance requirements, drug screening, progression, attendance, criminal background checks and grading policies apply to the Practical Nursing Certificate Program. Students convicted of any crime should see the Program Director prior to entering the program.
Entrance into the program is based on space availability, time of prerequisite completion, and grade point average. Specific entrance policies are available in the program brochure. A current American Heart Association CPR certification is required prior to clinical experience.
In order to provide a variety of learning experiences, students are scheduled clinical rotations at health care agencies through out the surrounding area. Clinical hours include both day and evening rotations
