“With the implementation of the new Concept-based Curriculum Fall 2017, the Practical Nursing Department will not accept new student applications for Summer 2017. However, applicants may register for general education courses summer semester.”

“For the fall semester only, we will accept the TEAS Test Score or an ACT score of 18 or higher as a component of the admission criteria.  Beginning with the spring 2018 application process, the ACT score of 18 or higher will be the required entrance exam.”

The Practical Nursing program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and proficiencies to provide safe and effective bedside nursing care within the scope of practice of licensed practical nurses. Students are instructed in the provision of nursing care for clients through the lifespan. Clinical experiences are provided at area hospitals and health care agencies in adult health, maternal health, child health, orthopedics, geriatrics, psychiatric and other areas of nursing practice.

Practical Nursing is open to men and women; few careers match the versatility, satisfaction and longevity afforded by a nursing career. Students who have satisfactorily completed the program may apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN). The Practical Nursing program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing. The program has a competitive admissions process.
