Register now for a part-time evening adult nursing class


The Capital Region BOCES part-time Adult Practical Nursing Program allows students to earn certification after work

Looking to re-imagine your future? Capital Region BOCES has a program for you. Adult LPN students practice

Anyone interested in a career with a promising future is encouraged to register now for the part-time Adult Practical Nursing Program class that starts Jan. 4 at the Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical Education School Albany campus.

Specifically geared for those with jobs or daytime commitments, the part-time program runs 18 months and prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination and apply for a state license as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN).

One of the fastest-growing and most in-demand jobs in the nation, nursing is the career of ambitious men and women looking for a challenge with many rewards. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 16 percent increase in demand for LPNs between now and 2022. That, coupled with the fact that LPNs earned a median salary nationally in 2012 of $44,090, makes it the right time to enter this exciting field.

The state-approved Adult Practical Nursing Program at the Capital Region Career & Technical School encompasses 1,100 hours of classroom and clinical study and practice.

Students will earn their clinical experience in various local healthcare facilities, including Ellis Hospital, Guilderland Nursing Home, Kingsway Arms Nursing Center, Teresian House, the Albany County Nursing Home and Baptist Health Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.Grsaduation

A full-time session offered by Capital Region BOCES that started in September filled its 120-plus slots so its important to register early if you are interested!
