Using learned technical skills, practical nurses assist clients in meeting their physical and psychosocial needs. Licensed practical nurses administer medications and perform treatments.
Licensed practical nurses utilize observation, critical thinking, decision-making and communication skills in caring for patients.
The Practical Nursing Diploma is designed to meet the requirements to become licensed as a Practical Nurse.
Licensing or certification exams are independent of graduation requirements.
