Practical Nursing

At Antonelli College, our Practical Nursing Diploma program is designed to help you gain the skills you need to work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, home health agencies, doctors’ offices, clinics and other healthcare settings. This program covers biological and behavioral sciences, general education topics, and the art and science of nursing.

Graduates of the Practical Nursing program are prepared to provide direct patient care by assisting with data collection, contributing to a plan of care, performing basic therapeutic and preventive nursing measures, and assisting in evaluating the outcomes of nursing interventions of patients with commonly occurring health problems. Upon completing the program, you can seek employment under the direction of a Registered nurse, physician, podiatrist, oral surgeon or other qualified professional.

This program is designed to be completed in 12-14 months and incorporates in-depth classroom, laboratory and clinical instruction in a variety of healthcare settings to give you a well-rounded education and to prepare you to apply for licensure as a Practical Nurse in the state of Mississippi and sit for the NCLEX-PN examination.
