(VC-PN)

Program Description:


The Practical Nursing program prepares the individual to assist in providing general nursing care requiring basic knowledge of the biological, physical, behavioral, psychological, and sociological sciences; and of nursing procedures which do not require the substantial skills, judgment, and knowledge required of a registered nurse. This care is performed under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician, or dentist. Students that complete the generic day program requirements (3 semesters) and students that complete the night and weekend program requirements (5 semesters), as identified by the Mississippi Community College Board, will be eligible to apply for LPN licensure.  The graduate of the program functions as a provider of care and a member of a profession.  This curriculum references the Client Needs and Integrated Processes Categories from the Test Plan for the National Council Licensure Examination for Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses.  This program is accredited by the Mississippi Community College Board.
