The Practical Nursing Program at Dixie Tech will prepare students to provide basic entry-level care for people who are sick, injured, recuperating or incapacitated in one way or another. Students learn to recognize and address the physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and cultural needs of individuals. Upon graduation, students are prepared to take the Practical Nursing licensure exam to become a Licensed Practical Nurse – LPN. Students who achieve successful completion of the Practical Nursing Program at Dixie Tech have the option to continue on to Dixie State University through a "bridge" program allowing a seamless transition to continue on towards an AAS RN.
