Pennsylvania College of Technology at Wellsboro will host a practical nursing program information session for those interested in a nursing career.

The information session will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 28, in the old music room at the Wellsboro Area School District administration building. Natalie O. DeLeonardis, program coordinator, will discuss admission requirements, the application process, tuition and financial aid, as well as 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. 5. The campus will begin pre-admission testing and accepting applications in July. All applicants must complete pre-entrance requirements by Oct. 1 to be considered for admission to the January 2015 class.

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

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

The practical nursing program is fully approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. Successful completers of the program will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-PN) for licensure as an LPN.

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