They will complete the Licensed Practical Nursing program in Winter of 2010.  The program is offered in the evenings at the Glennville Campus.

“It is refreshing to see nursing students eager to learn new skills as well as eager to provide quality care in a caring and compassionate manner to our residents,” said Valerie Durrence, RN, Director of Nursing at Glenvue Nursing Home.  “This was a really good group of students.  They were very professional with good customer service skills.”

"We are excited about the opportunity to address the growing need for practical nurses throughout the state,” said Dana Roessler, Director of Satellite Operations.  “The evening program provides a way for individuals to pursue a nursing career outside of a full-time day program. STC is committed to providing the best education for students seeking a career in practical nursing to ensure patients receive competent care.  After completing their first clinical rotation, I am proud to say the students currently enrolled in the Glennville campus program have demonstrated that they share that commitment.”

The Practical Nursing program licenses students to work under the direction of a registered nurse, physician, or dentist.  No matter where they work, the main job of a practical nurse is direct care and ensuring the health of patients.  The Licensed Practical Nursing program consists of 95 credit hours.

In many parts of the country, the demand for nurses is greater than the supply.  Growing numbers of nursing homes and home health care agencies have increased the need for practical nurses.  A growing population with a longer life span will also increase the demand for nurses.
