Practical Nursing Information Session to Be Held


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 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 13, in the former music room of the school district’s administration building.

Julie Mansfield, coordinator of the program, will discuss admission requirements; application, tuition and financial aid processes; licensure; and job prospects 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. Completed applications and pre-entrance requirements must be submitted by Oct. 2 to be considered for admission into the January class.

Classes for the 12-month, full-time practical nursing program are held at Wellsboro Senior High School, with clinical experiences at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital, the Green Home, and Broad Acres Health and Rehabilitation Center, as well as other local facilities.

The practical nursing program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. Those who successfully complete the program will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Exam for licensure as an LPN. Educational opportunities for advancement to registered nurse are available.

This is a clock-hour program, eligible for Pell Grants and Stafford loans, designed specifically by Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Penn College.
