About Practical Nursing at Tri-C:
The Practical Nursing Program is a one-year certificate program that admits students annually starting fall semester.  Prerequisite criteria must be met prior to admission. Students with a current STNA Certification can receive credit by articulation or by pass credit for the PNUR 1300 course.

The Practical Nursing Program has a day and evening track. Students are admitted to the program ONLY in the fall semester. The program consists of two semester and one summer session. Annually, 64 students are accepted into the day track and 40 students in the evening/weekend track. Corresponding day and evening lectures and labs are held at the Tri-C Metropolitan Campus. Clinicals are held in a variety of acute care settings.
