Three Rivers College is currently accepting applications for the Practical Nurse Program on the Poplar Bluff campus. The application deadline has been extended to October 15 at 4 p.m. Classes will run from January 2019 through December 2019.

“Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are a vital part of the healthcare system and find employment in a variety of settings,” said Dr. Staci Foster, Chair of Nursing and Allied Health at Three Rivers College. “Nursing students receive the full benefit of Three Rivers’ state-of-the-art facilities in the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center, as well as the expertise of our highly trained nursing faculty.”

The Practical Nurse (Poplar Bluff) Application form for the January 2019 cohort is available online at under “Application.” Applicants must also submit an online application for admission to Three Rivers College. To be eligible for acceptance into the Practical Nurse program, students must possess a high school diploma or high school equivalency credentials, take the ATI TEAS entrance exam, have a 2.0 GPA or higher, and complete a short questionnaire. The college will provide multiple ATI TEAS exam opportunities in Fall 2018.

The program will be a year-long, 55-credit-hour course of study that will prepare and qualify participants to take their LPN licensure examination. Students who complete the Practical Nurse program and pass their licensure examination will also qualify to apply for Three Rivers’ LPN-to-RN Bridge program.
