Practical Nursing Program Certificate
Code: F_CER_NR4_00 Campus: Boulder County
The Boulder County Campus offers a Practical Nursing program that is designed to prepare students to function as practical nurses. Employment opportunities are found in numerous health care organizations. Graduates of this program receive a certificate in practical nursing and are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensing Examination, Practical Nursing NCLEX®-PN for licensure to practice as an LPN. The practical nursing program includes a one-year full-time and a part-time program of study (four semesters).
The program's competitive admission process utilizes scores from a preadmission assessment examination given periodically at Boulder County Campus. (Students who successfully complete the BCC Professional Nursing Pathway Program may be given priority for admission.) Students must have completed requirements for Practical Nursing Program admission. (However, students may be currently enrolled in some prerequisite courses if they will be satisfactorily completed prior to program start.) Students wishing to sit for the preadmission assessment examination must submit an application attesting to completion (or near completion) of requirements. Students may retake the entire preadmission assessment exam once, after six months (contact department for policy); the most current scores will be used for the competitive admission process.
