Practical Nurse

Practical Nurse

Enroll in the full-time practical nursing program and you’ll be finished – and highly employable – in only 10 months. For those needing to work full-time while studying part-time, a weekend and evening program provides the same 880 hours of instruction, but with flexibility in mind.


Licensed practical nurses care for the physically or mentally ill in a variety of healthcare settings. Training to become a practical nurse is done in the classroom and in clinical practicum. Use JCCC's Practical Nursing program as a stepping stone to becoming a registered nurse (RN) or completing your bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN), or go to work immediately in the healthcare sector after receiving your license.

Students enrolled in the evening program will complete the program within 14 months.
