Some skills required of a practical nurse are: taking a patient’s vital signs, preparing a patient for surgery, assisting with examinations or diagnostic testing and clinical competencies such as catheters, tracheotomy tubes, oxygen, assisting a patient with personal hygiene and nutrition, administering prescribed medication and maintaining a clean and healthy patient environment. Upon completion of this course a student will be prepared for entrance into one of the many challenging and profitable areas of nursing, like home health, hospitals, doctor’s clinics, or nursing homes
