Penn College at Wellsboro’s Practical Nursing Program will host two information sessions for those interested in nursing as a career on April 6, both at 6:30 p.m. The sessions will be held at Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Wellsboro campus, 22 Walnut St., and will be connected to the Potter County Education Council through Zoom.
Lauren M. Scheetz, assistant director of the program, will discuss admission requirements; application, tuition, and financial aid processes; licensure; and job opportunities for graduates. There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.
A part-time, evening/weekend program beginning June 8 and graduating on March 25, 2025 will also be offered this year.
The Test of Essential Academic Skills and a minimum passing score are required for entry into the program. Before taking the TEAS, an application must be submitted to the Wellsboro office. Completed application materials and pre-entrance requirements must be submitted by May 26 for the June class.
Classes for the 12-month, full-time practical nursing program are held at Penn College’s Wellsboro campus, with clinical experiences at UPMC Wellsboro, the Green Home, and Broad Acres Health and Rehabilitation Center, as well as other local facilities. Potter County students join from the Education Council in Coudersport with clinical experiences at UPMC Cole and Sweden Valley Manor.
The practical nursing program is approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing. Those who complete the program will be prepared to take the National Council Licensure Exam for licensure as an LPN. Educational opportunities for advancement to registered nurses are available.
