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 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.
