Program Description

Our Practical Nursing Program, which leads to licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse, admits students each Fall.

The PN program is a selective admission program and therefore has it’s own admission process in addition to the college application.  Students are advised to apply early!

In order to work as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in North Carolina, students must complete a nursing educational program and then apply for licensure with the North Carolina Board of Nursing. A component of obtaining a license as an RN or LPN is passing the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX). Graduates of an RN program take the NCLEX-RN and graduates of a PN program take the NCLEX-PN. In addition, graduates must have a background check conducted prior to the North Carolina Board of Nursing issuing a license as an RN or LPN.
