Practical Nursing

Welcome to HLGU’s Practical Nursing (PN) Program!

The personalized attention and quality education our students receive are second to none. HLGU’s PN program has a low faculty-to-student ratio which allows for individualized attention.

What is the role of an LPN?

The licensed practical nurse is responsible for meeting the needs of clients in a variety of settings under the direction of a professional registered nurse and/or licensed physician. Employment opportunities include long-term care facilities, hospitals, clinics, or any institution that provides health care services.

How long is the program?

Students in Hannibal-LaGrange University’s Practical Nursing program earn their certificate in as little as 12 months.
