The Practical Nursing Program at the Crawford County Career & Technical Center has a 50-year history of successfully preparing practical nursing students for a career in nursing. Graduates of the program can be found working locally in area clinics, long-term care facilities, home health care, hospice, physician offices, schools and the hospital. The program has a 100 percent job placement rate.
The Practical Nursing Program is a full-time program, based on 28 hours a week over 13 months, which combines classroom instruction and online self-learning along with hands-on clinical experience. A simulation lab equipped with mid-fidelity manikins offers additional life-like training experiences. Our program offers a preceptorship program as well, which facilitates the students' transition to the workplace. The pass rate for the state board licensing exam is 100 percent.
Program graduate Sarah Thurau commented:
"The CCCTC-PN program was fantastic. Not only was I well prepared for the state licensing exam, but I was provided an opportunity to participate in the preceptorship program at the end of the course. This program was invaluable in providing me with one on one experience with a staff nurse. This program set me up for great success" at Meadville Medical Center.
Program graduate Shelly Haag has this to say:
"I feel the nursing program really set me up for success. If you want to start a nursing career and are ready to commit, I would highly recommend the CCCTC LPN Program."
