If you’d like to become a licensed practical nurse or a registered nurse, this program can serve your needs; you decide how far you want to go, and we pave the road to get there.
The two options share courses, but distinct paths are in place for each. After one year, you get a diploma qualifying you to apply to become an LPN. After the second year, you get a degree qualifying you to apply to be an RN.
Our organizing framework provides a competency-based approach to nursing through the use of interactive and student-focused learning. We use content- and performance-based outcomes ranging from simple to complex.
You’ll need to meet entrance requirements by March 1 for fall admission. LPNs who graduated within three years of admission or practice unrestricted for at least one year in the past three years are admitted to the degree level.
In order to be considered for admission to the Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College Nursing Program everyone must attend a pre-admission conference. You do not need an appointment to attend a Nursing pre-admission conference. Click here for the schedule of pre-admission conferences for the Nursing program.
You need to provide proof of active status on the Kentucky Medicaid Nurse Aide Registry or documentation of completion of a minimum 75-hour nursing assistant course. CPR certification is required during the program.
