North Campus Practical Nursing Program to Host Open House


Pennsylvania College of Technology’s North Campus, located just east of Wellsboro, will host an open house on Monday, April 27, for those interested in nursing as a career.

The 6 to 7:30 p.m. event will feature information sessions about the application process, tuition and financial aid. Visitors will be able to view the nursing lab and classroom, as well as attend sessions at 6 or 7 p.m. to have their questions answered by the coordinator of practical nursing.

Excellent career opportunities for licensed practical nurses exist in area hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, personal-care facilities and human-service organizations. The campus will begin accepting applications for the January 2010 class on June 1. All applicants must complete pre-entrance requirements by Oct. 1 to be considered for admission.

Classes for the 12-month, full-time practical nursing program are held at the North Campus, with clinical experiences offered at Laurel Health System facilities in Wellsboro or at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital and Sweden Valley Manor in Coudersport.

The North Campus program is fully approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and is in candidacy for accreditation by the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission.

After successful completion of the program, participants will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-PN) for licensure as an LPN.
