Excellent career opportunities for licensed practical nurses exist in area hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, personal-care facilities and human-service organizations.

Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Outreach Practical Nursing Program, located in the Wellsboro Area School District, will host an information session for those interested in nursing as a career. The session will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22, in the former music room of the school district’s administration building.

Julie Mansfield, coordinator of the program, will discuss admission requirements; application process, tuition and financial aid processes; licensure; and job opportunities for graduates. There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

The next practical nursing class is scheduled to begin Jan. 2. All applicants must complete the Test of Essential Academic Skills prior to receiving an application for the program.
