Practical Nursing 
Year ONE

Do you have a strong work ethic? Are you passionate about the care and well-being of others? If you answered yes, the Nursing program at SFCC wants you!


A nursing career offers job security and mobility, good pay, advancement opportunities, and diverse workplace environments. Nurses work not only in hospitals but also in health departments, doctors’ offices, hospices, assisted living centers, schools, home health, and the military. Nursing offers flexibility in employment settings and schedules and the opportunity to specialize with additional training.

Access and flexibility

SFCC’s nursing program prepares you to complete requirements for Practical Nursing and for Associate Degree Nursing (Year Two). The competency-based curriculum allows you to transition seamlessly from Year One to Year Two if you want to continue, or you may enter the workforce. Upon successful completion of the programs, you are eligible to take NCLEX licensure exams.

SFCC graduates who take the NCLEX exam have an excellent pass rate, and the Missouri State Board of Nursing has recognized the program as exemplary.

The PN program is offered on multiple campuses with various starting months. To accommodate students who are not able to attend day classes, there is an afternoon and weekend program. (See below.)

How to apply

You will need to complete an online ADMISSIONS APPLICATION and also a PN application. Select PRACTICAL NURSING (YEAR ONE) application to learn about the selection process, guidelines such as State Board of Nursing requirements, costs, and forms.
