  • One semester of introduction to accounting

The prerequisite for the Practicum is completion of at least three of the following in the Pre-Licensure sequence:

  • PubH 7581 – Gerontology and Services for Long-Term Care Residents

All of the courses in the Pre-Licensure sequence have been approved by the Minnesota Board of Licensure. However, some students may have taken similar courses elsewhere.

If you have already taken coursework or you have work experience that may fulfill the requirements of specific content areas related to licensure, bring a copy of your study plan to the executive director of the licensure board.
