Program for Healthcare Professionals to Become Licensed Practical Nurses


The University of Hawaii Maui College (UHMC) will be starting a hybrid program in January 2023 designed especially for working Certified Nurse Aides and other healthcare professionals who want to become licensed practical nurses. Hale Makua and ʻOhana Pacific Health are partnering with UHMC through this program, and eligible Maui and Oʻahu, healthcare professionals have an opportunity to become Practical Nurses (PN) while they are working.

PN graduates are prepared to work under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician in hospitals, extended care facilities, private nursing agencies, home health agencies, clinics, and physician offices.

This program is supported by the Healthcare Association of Hawaii, Hawaii State Center for Nursing, and University of Hawaii Community Colleges. For more information and requirements, visit: https://maui.hawaii.edu/cna-to-pn-bridge-program/
