Surry nursing graduates provide care at different points throughout a patient’s lifetime in a variety of settings. Practical Nursing is a one-year program that prepares students for careers as Licensed Practical Nurses after taking the examination leading to licensure. Students can also choose to complete the ADN or Associate Degree in Nursing, which is a two-year program enabling them to sit for the examination leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse.
