Nursing Level I (LPN) Curriculum Requirements 

Gainful Employment Disclosure

The Level I program is offered on the NCMC’s campus, at the outreach site at Northwest Technical School in Maryville, MO, or at the outreach site at North Central Area Vocational School in Bethany, MO. NCMC’s LPN certificate program is an intense, fast-paced program that is comprised of academic studies and clinical experiences. Upon completion of this program, the graduate will be eligible to apply to the Missouri State Board of Nursing to take the NCLEX-PN. Admission into the nursing program is selective. Please refer to the Pre-admission packet for more details.

The Trenton and Maryville campuses are a daytime program and the Bethany campus is a night and weekend program. The pre-requisites are required for all three campuses.
