Practical Nursing

The Everest Practical Nursing program is a diploma program that provides students with the basic nursing skills necessary to perform critical duties including basic nursing care, collecting pertinent information related to the patient’s care, and a patient's current state of health and history.

Professionalism and strong communication skills are necessary in the health care field, and the Practical Nursing program integrates these topics throughout the nursing program.

Our Practical Nursing program also equips our students with knowledge of the ethical and legal responsibilities of nursing as it relates to patients, co-workers, and health care facilities.

The Practical Nursing program’s objective is to provide students with the necessary combination of didactic theory and hands-on skills needed to prepare them for entry-level positions as Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) in facilities and health care centers.

Graduates of the Practical Nursing program are eligible to take the NCLEX-PN® (The National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses) licensing examination. Upon successful passing of the NCLEX-PN® examination, the graduate can use the initials LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse).

* Programs and schedules vary by campus.
