Practical Nursing Program

Inquire NowThe Practical Nursing program prepares students for entry level practice in nursing. Most commonly graduates will find jobs in long term care facilities and physician clinics but opportunities exist in other areas such as acute care settings and mental health. Students in College of Saint Mary’s Practical Nursing Program do very well on the state certification exam taken at the end of the program.
