Program Overview

The Associate of Applied Science Practical Nursing Program (PN) is a 60-semester credit, 20-month program of study. The purpose of the program is to educate nurses who will provide patient care as Licensed Practical Nurses in structured healthcare settings. Students receive classroom and clinical training in acute care, long term care, clinics, medical offices, and a variety of community settings. In addition, PN students receive education and experience in intravenous therapy and management.

The Practical Nursing program is approved by the Idaho Board of Nursing, and was established in 2003. The program is the first and only in the state of Idaho from which students graduate with an Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.).
