ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Carrington College in Albuquerque is now enrolling students in its new practical nursing program, according to a spokesman.
“The practical nursing certificate can be completed in as few as 12 months, preparing students for the NCLEX-PN exam and an entry-level career as an LPN,” spokesman Ryan Smith said in a news release.
Smith said enrolled students will learn about direct patient care, treatments and other nursing skills with hands-on clinical training.
The program will enroll cohorts of up to 24 students.
Tuition and fees for the program in New Mexico run just under $30,000, according to Carrington’s website.
