Practical Nursing Certificate Program
A licensed practical nurse (LPN) works under the direction of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and doctors and has a variety of duties. Most of their time is spent directly interfacing with patients. LPNs may also serve as patient advocates, communicating patient concerns to the medical team.

I am honored and proud that in such a short time my education and hard work has provided opportunities for growth in my career. Pima Medical prepared me to be successful. The encouragement and support I got from instructors was overwhelming, and it’s an experience I am always going to cherish.”
