With three campuses and online, Pratt Community College Nursing has options! At the Winfield campus, there is both a Practical Nursing (LPN) and an Associate Degree Nursing Program (RN), all in four semesters. Winfield students completing the LPN are automatically admitted into the RN program at Winfield. At the Wichita and Pratt campuses and online, there is a two semester Associate Degree Nursing Program (RN). One must be a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) to be accepted into the LPN program and a Paramedic or LPN for the RN Program.
We are fortunate to partner with other institutions of higher learning. Our partnership with Cowley College enables students in the Cowley service area (Cowley and Sumner counties) to take pre-nursing coursework at any of the Cowley College campuses or online and to have class and skills lab in Winfield at a building shared with Cowley Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Allied Health training. The Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) partnership with Hutchinson Community College and Kansas Department of Corrections enables PCC and HCC to utilize the KDOC facilities, primarily El Dorado Correctional Facility, for clinical sites and pays for a full-time staff member to teach. The South Central Kansas Nursing Partnership (SCKNP) is a partnership with Wichita Area Technical College (WATC) of which WATC provides the LPN education portion and PCC provides the RN education portion, including Pratt and Wichita campuses and online. The SCKNP maximizes efficiencies, including shared staff, resources, and professional development. Students benefit through efforts to streamline admissions and student policies.
