  • You will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to reach the competencies required for a beginning practical nurse graduate.

    Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and transfer credit may be options for receiving credit. For further information see the PLAR candidate guide (pdf) or the transfer credit page.
