Helping all Ages.....the Career for You
Practical nurses are integral members of the health care system, prepared to provide nursing care and health promotion activities to individuals across the life span in various health care settings under the direction of the registered nurse, licensed physician, and/or dentist. Classroom instruction is closely correlated with guided clinical practice in affiliating heath care agencies.
