COOLSPRING TOWNSHIP – Applications are currently being accepted for the Practical Nursing class scheduled to begin January 2020 at Mercer County Career Center.

Before applying, interested individuals must complete the pre-entrance exam. Those meeting the pre-entrance criteria are then eligible to apply for enrollment.

The 1,500 hours of classroom instruction and clinical experiences are offered concurrently as students engage in learning opportunities at hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities.

Students gain the knowledge and skills needed by a practical nurse and prepare to pass the National Council Licensure Examination for practical nurses (NCLEX-PN), which is necessary to become a practical nurse in Pennsylvania.

For additional information or to register for the pre-entrance exam, call Mercer County Career Center at 724-662-3000 ext. 1070.
