LPN Program Details

The mission of WDT's Practical Nursing program is to produce graduates who possess the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for employment as LPNs and to prepare the graduates to successfully complete the National Counsel of Licensure Exams for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN).

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN's) are an important component of the healthcare team. The nursing program stresses the importance of clinical experience by providing 650-700 clinical hours of actual supervised clinical. LPN's work in a variety of clinical settings including acute-care, long-term care, and office/clinic environments. The role of licensed practical nurses has expanded to include IV therapy and supervision in some settings. Upon successful completion of the program, nursing graduates take the NCLEX (National Certification Licensure Exam). Job placement for nursing program graduates is excellent for graduates in Rapid City, the Black Hills, and across South Dakota.

All accepted students in the Practical Nursing program are required to fulfill the prerequisite requirements by taking summer classes in preparation for full-time enrollment in the fall semester. The prerequisites are Anatomy and Physiology for the Health Professions, Microcomputer Software Applications, and Medical Terminology for the Health Professions.

WDT is located in Rapid City, South Dakota. More than 87 percent of WDT graduates live and work in our state.
