48 Semester Hours
The Practical Nursing program is designed to provide a sound educational background to those individuals interested in providing direct patient care. The curriculum is planned to prepare competent nurses who are caring and sensitive to diversity, use critical thinking and technology in providing day to day care under supervision in structured settings for individuals and their families/significant others. Throughout the curriculum the student has planned clinical and laboratory experiences to complement classroom learning and to enhance skills in the application of nursing principles and associated technology. The practical nurse functions under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician or licensed dentist.
The nursing curriculum prepares graduates to apply to take the National Council Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) and is approved by the South Carolina Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation (LLR) Board of Nursing. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, Georgia, 30326, phone (404) 975-5000.
Successful completion of the Practical Nursing program does not guarantee licensure to practice as a licensed practical nurse. Requirements for the program are subject to change without notice in order to meet the requirements of the South Carolina Department of Labor Licensing and Regulation (LLR) Board of Nursing and/or State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education and/or the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
