The Practical Nursing Program is a full time, twelve-month state approved program beginning annually in July. The curriculum consists of a wide variety of clinical experience, along with classroom instruction. Successful completion of our certificate program prepares you to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and become a Licensed Practical Nurse. This program is an excellent stepping-stone toward a RN degree, or can provide exciting opportunities working as a LPN in a variety of patient care settings. The first step to admission is the NLN-PN Pre-Entrance Exam, which is a non-medical, basic math, reading and science test. There is a limited number of testing dates, so register today! For more information, please download the PN and NLN Intro Letter and NLN Registration Guide.
The Practical Nursing Program is approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.
