Description

Health Professions and Related Clinical Services


The Practical Nursing Programs at SouthArk are designed to prepare the successful graduates to pass the NCLEX-PN licensure exam and to provide diverse types of nursing care in a variety of health care environments for patients across the lifespan. Successful graduates will earn a TC (Technical Certificate) in Practical Nursing from the college and will be eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN).
• The awarding of the certificate in practical nursing is not contingent upon passing the NCLEX-PN
examination.
• Successful completion of the program does not guarantee that the graduate will be allowed by
the Arkansas State Board of Nursing (ASBN) to take or to successfully pass the NCLEX-PN exam.
• Successfully passing the NCLEX-PN allows the individual to practice as a Licensed Practical Nurse
(LPN), which qualifies him/her to provide bedside nursing care including, but not limited to:
evaluate patients; record findings; document patient symptoms and progress; administer
medications; perform a variety of procedures requiring technical skills; and apply scientific
principles, such as sterile technique.
Nursing Career opportunities are wide and varied and include, but are not limited to, employment in
hospitals, clinics, schools, industry, and many other areas providing direct or indirect care to diverse
patients as well as various other fields that do not include patient care.
