Thank you for your interest in the St. Charles Community College Practical Nursing Program. It is fully approved by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
The Practical Nursing Program is designed to prepare licensed practical nurses who administer safe, patient-centered nursing care in beginning staff nurse roles in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, doctor's offices and other health care facilities and home settings. Graduates are awarded a certificate of achievement in practical nursing and are eligible to apply for the Practical Nurse Licensing Examination.
Since intravenous therapy is integrated into the practical nursing program, graduates are prepared for employment as IV-certified licensed practical nurses immediately after graduation and satisfactory completion of the State Board of Nursing requirements for licensure.
