Nursing in nine months!
Salina Tech’s Practical Nurse program is designed to teach the knowledge and hands-on skills needed to enter the nursing field. Through a combination of classroom learning, simulations and clinical experiences, students develop the nursing skills that make them stand out in the job market.
The program is designed to prepare students to care for patients under the supervision of a physician or registered nurse. This includes not only clinical patient-care skills, but also soft skills such as professionalism and effective communication.
Topics covered include pharmacology, medical-surgical nursing, gerontology, maternal-child nursing and mental health nursing. The nursing courses consist of a blend of academic and clinical components; together they will prepare the graduate for success with the licensing exam for Practical Nurses, called the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-PN.)
Students first must complete several prerequisites before being accepted into this program. See Prerequisite Information for details. Priority will be given to applications received by March 1.
