A vital and expanding field awaits our students in the HCC Practical Nursing program.

Our full-time and part-time enrollment options are available in our McPherson location.  We provide support throughout your learning experience with an on-site counselor to help with personal and financial planning issues to ensure you are able to reach your dream of being a nurse.

Our practical nursing program is one of only two programs in the state accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN)  On the national exam, our graduates exceed the average pass rate of other programs across the nation.

Our students are able to learn with our high-fidelity simulators, which provide a realistic and life-like experience to enhance the educational environment.  Our students are also involved in a variety of activities in class and in the community to compliment the program. These interactions provide additional opportunities for learning, engagement, and foster a passion for care-giving that makes our graduates exceptional.

T his program alone has changed my life in so many ways. To me it is one of the most amazing experiences I have ever been a part of. When I got my first job, I received so many kudo's from my facility on the training and learning that I had received throughout this program.
