The practical nursing program at Southern State is a certificate program combining lecture classes, lab practice and clinical experience designed to prepare the graduate to be eligible to complete the licensure examination to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. Students have the option of completing the first-year Practical Nursing Program and, at that point, can choose to stay and complete the second-year Associate Degree Program, or to test for licensure and begin work as an LPN.
