What is a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)?

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are entry-level nurses who provide basic, hands-on clinical care under the direction of the patient care team, which usually includes Registered Nurses (RNs), physicians, and other healthcare professionals.

Beginning your healthcare career journey in our Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) Apprenticeship program will equip you with the skills and knowledge you will need to take and secure your license and begin your career.

Our LPN Apprenticeship program works in collaboration with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College School of Nursing, where students attend classes at the MGCCC Tradition campus twice a week.

LPN Career Path

Beginning your healthcare career as an LPN Apprentice can open doors to furthering your career growth as a Registered Nurse (RN) or helping to launch you into a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program, which can help set you apart and prepare you to move into nursing management, education, and higher pay.
