PRACTICAL NURSING

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR OUR FALL 2024 PRACTICAL NURSING PROGRAM

ADMISSION PACKETS WILL BE MAILED BY THE END OF JUNE TO ALL APPLICANTS THAT

HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO THE 2024-2025 MTC PRACTICAL NURSING PROGRAM.  

For upcoming high school seniors and adults looking to successfully complete a Licensed Practical Nursing program, Massanutten Technical Center offers an 18-month program that begins every August. 

First-year students spend one-half day at MTC in pre-clinical instruction, which includes the study of the structure and function of the body, principles of nutrition, basic nursing skills, pharmacology, dosage calculation, and introduction to the nursing care of the adult client. This is followed by a second 36-week phase of instruction, which has 15 hours per week of classroom instruction and 14 hours per week providing nursing care to clients under teacher supervision in the acute care setting (RMH), as well as in the long-term care setting. Second-year students follow a full-time class and clinical schedule.

High school students are encouraged to speak with a guidance counselor at their home school to obtain scheduling information and testing information for the PN program.

 

In order to apply for the Practical Nursing program, students must register for an information session which will be held in person at MTC. You may pick up your session reservation form in the Continuing Education office or download and print it. All Information Session Reservation Forms MUST be returned in person to our office.  Reservation forms and packets for the 2025-2026 program will be available in mid-December or January.
