The Practical Nursing Program offers two educational formats for students, an 11-month day program that begins in August and ends in June and an 18-month evening program that begins in January and ends in June of the following year. Students successfully completing the Practical Nursing Program Course are awarded a Technical Certificate. The course of study meets the requirements of the Arkansas State Board of Nursing, and after graduation, students are eligible to apply for the State licensing examination to become an LPN. If a student has been convicted of a crime, they may not be eligible to take the State licensing examination. The Division Chair of Medical Education at Community College-UA answers all questions concerning eligibility for the Practical Nursing program at 800-844-4471 ext 1147. Due to the strenuous nature of nursing and practice-orientation of CCCUA, the College reserves the right to determine the eligibility of any student to enroll or continue in the nursing program. This determination is based on, but not limited to, the characteristics required of a clinical nurse. Eligibility determination is made by the faculty’s evaluation of a student’s ability to perform the clinical tasks necessary to complete the clinical and course objectives. These abilities are reevaluated after each course.
To meet the requirements of the Arkansas State Board of Nursing, the Practical Nursing Programs will follow a special calendar, and class days will be different from those followed by students in other programs. Regular class days will be 5-6 hours each; clinical days will be 8-12 hours each.
The Practical Nursing program has special admission and entrance requirement. View LPN Admission Requirements.
