LPN Program Details
The basic facts are:
-People are living longer than ever before.
-There are more nursing positions open, than nurses to fill those positions.
-Procedures that once required intensive care can now be done on an outpatient basis, enabling more procedures to be done every day.
Only a short while ago, it was unusual for people to live beyond their 70s. With new medical technology, that age is rising, and the people who are living longer tend to have a greater need for nursing care. These patients need help in hospitals, in assisted-living or retirement facilities, and in their homes.
The people who are living longer owe their increased life expectancy to new technologies and procedures. These procedures can be done in clinics and outpatient care facilities, as well as hospitals. Each facility needs a full staff, including practical nurses.
The demand for nursing is extremely high in the Erie area and across the nation. Tri-State Business Institute’s new School of Practical Nursing will prepare you for work in the medical field, enabling you to provide patient care in hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, schools, and home environments.
Our accredited program will give you the knowledge and the clinical skills you need to take the NCLEX-PN licensing exam (State licensure) and qualify you for employment as a practical nurse. The practical nursing program is purposely developed from simple to complex, introducing skills and concepts each tem to coordinate with clinical experiences. Our school offers flexible schedules to fit your lifestyle.
