Twenty-one students recently graduated from the practical nursing program at Portage Lakes Career Center W. Howard Nicol School of Practical Nursing.
The graduates of Class #68 completed the program, which takes 1,300 hours of instruction, in one school year. The course of study prepares selected adult students for practice in the field of practical nursing.
The program is divided up into four sessions. The curriculum includes courses that are designated to bring students from basic nursing principles, skills and knowledge to the integration of nursing in clinical practices. “Nursing is both an art and a science,” said Lori Huber, program director. “Everything we teach and learn is based on caring.”
