Practical Nursing Program

The Practical Nursing program at Americare Technical School balances classroom instruction with clinical experience. Students receive a solid foundation in the areas of Medical-Surgical Nursing, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Geriatrics, and Pharmacology. Graduates of this program qualify to pursue the LPN State Board licensure.

What are Americare PN graduates qualified to do?

Upon completion of this program, the graduate is prepared for an entry-level nursing position in a hospital, nursing home, clinic, or other healthcare facilities. Their job duties may include taking vital signs, administering medications, collecting samples for testing, and providing other basic care.We have education that fits your schedule. Most of our students work at least part-time, and many have family responsibilities on top of that. But at Americare Technical School, they’re able to find a balance between the demands of school and life. In most classes, you can focus on one or two courses at a time instead of trying to juggle the work of several classes and cramming for multiple exams all at once.We have a weekday, weeknight and weekend classes. For more questions, ask for an appointment with one of our admissions representatives.
