Welcome to Nunez Community College Practical Nursing Program
Nunez Practical Nursing program has a unique, accelerated curriculum.
Once a student has completed the prerequisite courses, the Practical
Nursing program is approximately twelve (12) months long. Once in the
PN program, students attend class or clinical on a busy forty (40)
hours a week schedule. Classroom hours are typically 8:00 am to 4:30 pm
Monday through Friday. Clinical times will vary depending on the
clinical site. Our semesters align with the college catalog and does
allow for breaks and holidays.
Successful completion of this program qualifies the graduate to
take the National Council Licensure Examination for state licensure
as a practical nurse (LPN). An LPN provides general nursing care
under the direction of a registered nurse, nurse practitioner,
licensed physician, dentist or optometrist.
Classes begin in the fall and spring. All prerequisite classes
must be completed by May for all fall enrollment, and by August
for spring enrollment. This is a limited enrollment program.
