Nursing Programs

The LPN program is approved by the Alabama Board of Nursing and graduates who successfully complete the program may apply to take the NCLEX-PN. It also has got accreditation from NLNAC.

The program exposes students to clinical experiences at area hospitals and health care agencies. The practical lessons include adult health, maternal health, child health, orthopaedics and geriatrics.

The program is estimated to run for 3 terms which is an equivalent of 46 credit hours. Admission to the college is usually done at the start of each term: in the fall (August), spring in January or the summer in May.

The aim of the practical nursing program is two fold. The first being to ensure that students acquire necessary skills and knowledge. The other is to adequately prepare graduates take and pass the National Licensure Examination.
