The practical nursing program at SCC teaches students to provide direct care for patients through classroom and campus laboratory work as well as on-site training in hospital, geriatric and other health care settings.
The practical nursing program is fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Licensure Exam for Practical Nurses. However, completion of this program does not guarantee licensure. The state board may refuse licensure to applicants who may jeopardize the well-being of Missouri citizens.
"The Missouri State Board of Nursing may refuse to issue any certificate of registration or authority, permit or license required pursuant to this chapter for one or any combination of causes stated in subsection 2 of this section. (1-14) 1990." RSMO 335.066.
