Practical Nursing

Practical Nursing (900 Hours)

The Practical Nursing program at UBTech incorporates practice of basic skills with scientific principles and nursing theory. The knowledge base has been organized according to body systems, from simple to the complex, with one concept building upon another. Students practice the application of the theory and principles learned, first in a simulated lab situation then in care facilities under the supervision of faculty members. Students not only learn to recognize their strengths and abilities, but to remain within the scope of their practice, prepared to function in a structured situation under the direction of a registered nurse, physician, or other primary health care provider.

As of September 2016, the 2015-2016 class:

  • 88% completion rate
  • 100% passed NCLEX-PN on first attempt
  • 80% of that class went on immediately to higher education
  • 100% job placement
