South Louisiana Community College is pleased to offer Practical Nursing programs at our Abbeville, Crowley, Lafayette, Opelousas, St. Martinville, and Ville Platte campuses. Practical Nursing program applicants must meet all admission requirements for SLCC and all requirements established by the Louisiana State Board of Practical Nursing Examiners (LSBPNE) before being admitted to the program. Students who are unable to meet the requirements at this time, are strongly encouraged to enter SLCC as a General Studies major and take classes that will help them qualify in the future. Courses that we recommend you take are Math, English, Nutrition, and Anatomy & Physiology.
