Practical Nursing

If compassion, caregiving, and human connection are ideal career qualities for you, you might want to consider the Practical Nursing program at the Salter School of Nursing & Allied Health.

Practical Nursing

Practical nurses play an important role in client care. Whether they are giving medications or providing wound care, practical nurses are in tune with the clients’ needs. They are the ones who help keep a watchful eye on a client’s immediate health status and the ones who administer medication.
