Essential Information

New Hampshire requires that its practical nurses be licensed by the New Hampshire Board of Nursing. Individuals can meet this qualification by completing a practical nursing training program, which takes about one year to complete. Admission is competitive and will likely require the following:

  • GED or high school diploma
  • Placement test
  • Reference letters
  • Background check

The curriculum of a training program includes general education, core nursing classes and clinical work. Before beginning any clinical experience, students will need to take a drug test, show proof of medical liability insurance, have CPR certification, take a physical exam and submit immunization test results.
