Nursing Pathway to LPN at Maricopa Skill Center

GateWay Community College’s Nursing program offers a new pathway into the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program in conjunction with Maricopa Skill Center.

The new pathway allows you to obtain Patient Care Technician skills and Nurse Assisting credentials, with an opportunity to be admitted directly into GateWay’s LPN program for Fall 2014.  Students in Maricopa Skill Center’s NA/PCT program will expand their skill set, prepare to be successful in the LPN program and be able to enter the LPN program directly - which will save time.

The new NA/PCT pathway will increase the number of spots available, provide a faster track to complete and increase the number of students into the RN program.

You can be admitted immediately starting in Spring 2014 to the Patient Care Technician/Nursing Assisting program at MSC. Students who successfully complete this program will be guaranteed a spot in GateWay’s LPN program for Fall 2014. 

An application process requires a background check and finger printing, which takes up to eight weeks to process. See the attached application to get started.
