Welcome to a Career in Nursing!

Have you ever thought about a career in nursing? If so, you may want to consider a career as a practical nurse. Practical nursing is a great first step in a nursing career and provides an excellent academic and clinical foundation in only 10 and a half months.

The job forecast is strong for practical nurses with numerous opportunities for future employment in medical clinics, doctor's offices, home health services, nursing care facilities and medical/surgical hospitals. Practical nurses fill a very important role as a member of the healthcare team, working under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician.
