In this work, we propose and analyze a second-order accurate numerical scheme, both in time and space, for the multi-dimensional Poisson-Nernst-Planck system. Linearized stability analysis is developed, so that the second order accuracy is theoretically justified for the numerical scheme, in both temporal and spatial discretization. In particularly, the discrete $W^{1,4}$ estimate for the electric potential field, which plays a crucial role in the proof, are rigorously established. In addition, various numerical tests have confirmed the anticipated numerical accuracy, and further demonstrated the effectiveness and robustness of the numerical scheme in solving problems of practical interest.
