If you would like to work in a busy doctor's office, nursing home or hospital, whether you would enjoy working with the handicapped, newborn infants, children, teenagers, adults or the elderly–there is an opportunity for you in nursing!

As a student within IRSC’s Licensed Practical Nurse Program you will be trained to perform both simple and complex treatments. LPNs help care for sick, injured, and handicapped people in hospitals, clinics, doctor's offices, and private homes. You will work under the direction of doctors and registered nurses, provide beside patient care, and help examine and treat patients. As a Practical Nurse you will bathe, dress, medicate, feed, and record progress of patients.

The Practical Nursing Program at Indian River State College is a certificate program leading to the opportunity to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). Students receive an excellent foundation in nursing including intensive classroom instruction and supervised clinical experiences in local health agencies. The PN program is offered at the Main Campus as a one-year program with students attending classes approximately 35 hours per week.
