New Arizona Practical Nursing Program

WCUI is launching a Practical Nursing program that has been built for the next generation of Arizona Practical Nurses! In March, WCUI School of Nursing completed the approval process to offer a Practical Nursing diploma program at our Phoenix, Arizona campus. We are now accepting applications for an anticipated July 2020 start at our new campus in Midtown Phoenix. 

“The spread of COVID-19 is demonstrating the need for a strong nursing workforce more than any event in recent history.” Myra Chason, BSN, CEO and Owner of WCUI stated.  “WCUI School of Nursing is excited to introduce the Practical Nursing Program and classes will start in July of this year. Phoenix needs Practical Nurses and we are proud to provide their education.” 

The WCUI Practical Nursing program is a 12-month, 3 day a week diploma program that will prepare students to advance their nursing career and meet the growing demand for nurses in the field. The program combines theory, technical skill, biology, pharmacology, simulation labs, NCLEX preparation, and off-site clinical experiences to provide students with the skills and competencies they need to start their career as a Practical Nurse.

The Practical Nursing program is a great opportunity for those who have healthcare experience as a CNA/ LNA, MA, EMS, or more and are looking to further their healthcare journey in the nursing field.
