Welcome to Bainbridge State College Practical Nursing Program website. Our program is dedicated to the purpose of meeting the health care needs of the community facilities and residents in our service area by preparing qualified applicants with the ability to pass the licensure examination. All graduates of the program will be theoretically, clinically, ethically, and legally safe entry-level practitioners of practical nursing. The Bainbridge State College PN program curriculum is offered in a sequence that encourages a gradual increase in difficulty level and increased critical thinking skills by the student. The theory and clinical courses are aligned to reiterate the student learning experience through cognitive, psychomotor, and effective learning strategies. The students must satisfy learning outcomes and program benchmarks for safe entry-level nursing, and demonstrate competency on the exit exam requirement before graduation from the PN Program.
