Adult Education Program Launches Nursing Careers
Adults interested in starting new and rewarding careers in the healthcare industry are encouraged to attend the Practical Nursing Open House at Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School.
The informational event will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Blackstone Valley Tech campus, 65 Pleasant Street in Upton, MA. The open house will include tours of the program’s laboratories, informational presentations, and the chance to speak directly with students and staff. Enrollment is now open for the Practical Nursing class beginning in August 2017. Applications can be downloaded online at www.valletech.k12.ma.us and will be available during the open house.
Valley Tech’s post-secondary Practical Nursing program was established in 2009 to help men and women make the leap into career pathways in nursing. To accommodate non-traditional students balancing personal and professional commitments, the program utilizes a non-traditional schedule: classes meet for six hours per night on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and one weekend per month. The program is completed in three 20-week terms for a total of 60 weeks in the program.
Graduates of the program have maintained stellar pass rates on the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) for Practical Nurses.
The Blackstone Valley Tech Practical Nursing program proudly serves in district, out of district, and out of state learners. For more information, contact the Blackstone Valley Tech Practical Nursing program by email at PNP@valleytech.k12.ma.us or by phone at (508) 529-7758 x3122.
