Practical Nursing is an exciting and rewarding career with career opportunities available in hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, doctors' offices, industry and home health.

Health care opportunities are rapidly growing and are expected to have greater than average employment growth in the immediate future.

The Wilkes-Barre Area Career & Technical Center Practical Nursing Program has job placement assistance. If you are a recent high school graduate, ready to return to the work force, or you just desire a change of occupations to one that is both satisfying and rewarding, then "give us a year and we can give you a career."
