Deadline Extended for New LPN Program in Poplar Bluff
The application deadline for Three Rivers College’s new Practical Nursing Program in Poplar Bluff has been extended. The application deadline, previously October 2, has been moved to October 20 to allow prospective students more time to register for the program.
"With a program this new, you want to ensure that all eligible students have the time needed to apply," said Dr. Staci Foster, chair of Nursing and Allied Health. "This program gives extraordinary career advancement possibilities to our students, and we want to give every opportunity for students to join the program."
The Practical Nursing (Poplar Bluff) Application form for the January 2018 LPN cohort is available here. Applicants must also submit an online application for admission to Three Rivers College.
To be eligible for acceptance into the Practical Nursing Program, students must possess a high school diploma/equivalency, 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 2017.
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 LPN Program and pass their licensure examination will also qualify to apply for Three Rivers’ LPN-to-RN Bridge Program.
