What will I learn?
This program teaches you to use basic nursing skills and psychiatric principles to interact with and care for clients in a therapeutic manner and monitor treatment methods. You’ll learn to perform basic nursing skills, administer medications, conduct one-to-one relationship development, and participate in group therapy. You will learn clinical skills though faculty-directed labs and clinical rotations at local hospitals allowing students to be a part of actual hospital experiences.
When you successfully complete all program requirements, you will be awarded a certificate and be eligible to take the standardized exam for state licensure. The program is approved by the Colorado State Board of Nursing.
