Southeast Tech’s LPN evening/weekend diploma program offers all of the required LPN coursework during the evenings and on Saturdays to accommodate those who have busy lives during the weekdays. The evening/weekend program takes less than two years to complete! This program is a part-time program, and it does run through the summers. If you are interested in becoming an LPN, but can’t take courses during the weekday, the LPN evening/weekend program might be a great option for you!

Graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-PN and be licensed as an LPN after approval by the Board of Nursing in their state of residence. Students who are not South Dakota residents or South Dakota residents who are seeking employment outside South Dakota should contact that state’s Board of Nursing for any additional requirements.

Background checks, drug screenings and a CNA are required for this program. Please see Licensed Practical Nursing Handbook   and the Health Student Handbook  for additional/adjusted rules, regulations and policies regarding your program.
