The Practical Nursing program focuses on the implementation of nursing skills with clients experiencing common, well-defined health problems in the acute or chronic stages. The program is one year and 1,350 hours in length. It is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission.
The program begins in January of each year.
Upon completion of the requirements of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for licensure, including taking the state licensing examination (NCLEX-PN) to become Licensed Practical Nurses.
The program policies including attendance, grading, progression, clinical behaviors, and readmission guidelines are found in the student handbook that each student obtains once admitted to the Practical Nursing program.
Practical Nurses or PNs provide nursing care for patients under the supervision of another health care professional. PNs may work in hospitals, extended care agencies, and some community settings.
You can complete the Practical Nursing (PN) program at CFCC in just one year.
