Practical Nursing

This program prepares the individual to assist in providing general nursing care which requires a basic knowledge of the biological, physical, behavioral, psychological and sociological sciences, and of nursing procedures which do not require the substantial skills, judgment, and knowledge required of a registered nurse. This care is performed under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician, or dentist. As identified by the Mississippi Community College Board, students that successfully complete the full-time program requirements-3 semesters, and the part-time night/weekend program-5 semesters will be eligible to apply for LPN licensure.
