In partnership with Coal Country Community Health Center and Knife River Care Center, we offer an onsite practical nursing program through Bismarck State College. The program allows individuals in surrounding communities to pursue a nursing career through non?traditional means and eliminates the need to travel to do so.
The application for the 2023-2024 school year is open with a deadline of March 5, 2023. The application is available on the Bismarck State College website.
The new class will begin in August and run 11 months. Upon completion of the program, students earn a practical nursing certificate and are eligible to take the NCLEX-PN exam (nursing boards) to become a licensed practical nurse.
