Program Description:

Offering healthcare education in PA – along with other growing fields – you can gain the theory, laboratory and clinical experience for an entry-level career as a practical nurse. Care for patients of all ages, ethnicities, cultural groups and stages of wellness/illness in a variety of clinical settings.

Are you considering nursing as a career path?  At FORTIS you can pursue an education to prepare to become a Practical Nurse. If you want to attend a nursing program in the Wilkes Barre / Scranton area of Pennsylvania, then we urge you to consider FORTIS!  The FORTIS LPN programs in PA prepare students to sit for the NCLEX-PN exam upon graduation.

The Practical Nursing program at FORTIS provides the theory, laboratory and clinical experiences to prepare students for an entry-level position in Practical Nursing. Nursing theory guides clinical practice. The clinical portion of the PN nursing program provides students with hands-on experience; providing nursing care to patients of all ages, ethnic and cultural groups, and stages of wellness/illness in hospitals and other health care agencies affiliated with FORTIS. In addition, the clinical atmosphere of the PN program will enable the student to observe first-hand the behaviors that are crucial to employability in those agencies.

This is a hybrid program, which means that the majority of the program is taken at the campus and several courses within the program (less than 50% of the program) are taken online. The program’s blend of on campus and online courses allows students to experience all the support and services our school has to offer as well the flexibility and convenience of online classes.*

Upon completion of one of the LPN programs in PA, students must take the NCLEX-PN examination to obtain licensure as a practical nurse. We are proud of our nursing facilities and would love the opportunity to give you a tour of the local campus. Request information to learn how to get started in one of our schools in PA today!
