Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AA degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

Practical Nursing Certificate

Academic Map

 

The Practical Nursing Program is offered at three locations: the Moberly campus; the Mexico campus; and the Columbia Area Career Center in Columbia, MO.

This 12-month/1 year certificate program in Practical Nursing (PN) provides a combination of subject matter and clinical experiences to prepare the student to work in a variety of structured health care environments. A graduate from the MACC PN program will function as a client caregiver under the direction of the Professional Registered Nurse and/or a Licensed Physician.

The purpose of the practical nurse education is to help the student to acquire those attitudes, skills, and knowledge essential to the role of a competent practical nurse.

This program also offers intravenous therapy content and provides certification as outlined by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.

Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be eligible to apply to take the National Council of Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses. The State of Missouri Nursing Practice Act, Section 335.066, provides additional criteria for eligibility to apply for licensure as a Practical Nurse. Successful completion of the program does not guarantee eligibility to take the licensing exam. Satisfactory performance on this examination will qualify the student for licensure as a Practical Nurse.

The program is fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is approved by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Division of Career Education.

 

Prerequisites: The following prerequisites are required for admission into the PN Program and must be completed prior to starting the program:

  • Completion of college level Human Anatomy/Lab with a "C" or above and
  • MTH010 Fundamentals of Math or equivalent or higher with a minimum grade of "C" or placement score for MTH100 Intermediate Algebra or higher.

***Students must maintain a letter grade of "C" or above in each class to continue in the PN program. There is a clinical fee assessed per credit hour for each nursing course. Prior to clinical experience, a physical examination and a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course are required.
