Licensed Practical Nurse

**Please note that Pratt Community College is suspending the Practical Nursing program after the completion of the Spring 2022 semester. This does not affect our Pre-Nursing program or the programs under Allied Health (CNA, CMA, Home Health) or the pending partnership with Barton Community College to facilitate the Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) program on the Pratt campus. The ADN program is still on track to begin Fall 2022. Read the full press release.

The Practical Nursing Program is designed to provide the Kansas Certified Nurse Aide the opportunity to enter the nursing profession as a Licensed Practical Nurse.

About the Instructor:
Amy Geifer (web).jpg

My name is Amy Giefer, and I am the instructor for the Licensed Practical Nursing Program at Pratt Community College. I have been a nurse for 10+ years with expertise in long-term care and nursing education. Teaching has been enriching, and I love having the opportunity to assist students in becoming safe, caring, and competent nurses. I am also a mom to four children and enjoy chasing them around to the many activities in which they are involved.

Student Testimonials:

“I have enjoyed the honor of attending PCC’s Nursing program. The instructors are caring and want to see you succeed, they are quick to respond and help when you need it. I am confident this Nursing program will have me more than prepared for my NCLEX-PN exam in June.”
-Brielle Vandervoort, PN Student Fall 2021

“Amy Giefer is someone who is passionate about teaching and that definitely projected onto her students. I know for a fact that I would not be the nurse I am today without her. Nursing school was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my entire life, but by far the most rewarding and one of my greatest accomplishments. To hear my kids brag about their mama being a nurse is a wonderful feeling.”
-Heather Cash, Associates in Nursing, May 2021
