Nurse pinning Friday, July 15

The Lake Region State College Practical Nurse Program will hold its pinning ceremony for graduates at 10:00 am Friday, July 15th in Robert Fawcett Auditorium. Nine students will be going through the ceremony.

The Practical Nurse program at LRSC provides the knowledge and skills you need to enter a challenging career in nursing. Upon acceptance into the program, you will receive classroom study and supervised experience in caring for patients in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, acute care centers, long-term care facilities, home care agencies, and clinics. During the eleven-month certificate program, you will be taught practical nursing skills under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with the earliest receiving priority consideration.

North Dakota requires that graduates of state-approved practical nurse programs pass a licensing exam before they may practice as Licensed Practical Nurses. Graduates of LRSC's Practical Nurse program are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN®).

Graduates who meet continuation criteria may continue their studies in the Associate Degree Nurse (ADN) program at Lake Region State College, or transfer many of their credits to baccalaureate programs at other higher education institutions.
