Penn College Practical Nursing Course in Coudersport

This full-time, clock-hour program is scheduled over one calendar year and includes classes and clinical experience. The program is divided into three levels of instruction for a total of 1,504 hours. Penn College’s Practical Nursing curriculum provides the knowledge base and experience necessary to become a safe practitioner, operating as a member of the healthcare team, sharing in the care of patients within the accepted scope of the licensed practical nurse (LPN).

Practical nursing education is a process through which a student acquires knowledge, skills, attitudes, and judgment to provide safe nursing care under the direction of a licensed professional nurse (RN), licensed physician (MD/DO), or a licensed dentist (DDS). Graduates of the program will be eligible to take the Practical Nursing National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) for licensure in the State of Pennsylvania as an LPN and be prepared to seek employment in multiple healthcare settings. These include nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, physician offices and clinics, and home care agencies.

This program is scheduled to start on Monday, August 31, 2020 and will end on Thursday, August 19, 2021. Most classes and clinicals will take place in Coudersport, but some travel to Wellsboro will be necessary. This program is eligible for financial aid. The application deadline is July 24, 2020. For more information or to request an application, contact Marie VanEss, Penn College at Wellsboro, at (570) 724-7703.
