Licensed Practical Nurses help meet the nation-wide need for health care workers.
By Brian Stauss
Centura College’s Norfolk and Richmond campuses announce new classes enrolling now for Practical Nursing. Students learn to work with patients, to evaluate patient health status, and develop individualized care plans. Classroom instruction and supervised clinical (patient care) experiences are integrated to reinforce learning and to help develop the attitudes to succeed. This program prepares students to work in a variety of settings including: doctor’s office, a clinic, hospital, long term care facility or in a private home care setting.
“Nursing is a dynamic and expanding profession, ideal for individuals looking to help others, be intellectually stimulated, and have a variety of employment and educational opportunities,” says Tara Crosby, Nursing Director of Education at Centura College’s Norfolk campus.
The program is designed to take only 15 months to complete and teach the student the skills and qualifications to begin a career in the world of nursing. Completion of the program, and subsequent Practical Nursing licensure by the Commonwealth of Virginia, qualifies the graduate for an entry level position as a Practical Nurse as defined by the Virginia Nurse Practice Act.
