Practical nursing (PN) is a rewarding and critical healthcare role that impacts patient health, quality of life and achievement of potential. The Practical Nursing curriculum at Blue Ridge Community College provides the knowledge and skills needed to integrate safety and quality into nursing care to meet the needs of the holistic individual. 

Practical nurses make a tangible difference every day in their communities, and they have never been more needed in our workforce. The Program on Health Workforce Research and Policy at the Cecil G. Sheps Center has forecasted a practical nurse shortage of 50% by the year 2033.
