COTC’s Coshocton Campus to host practical nursing open house

| August 19, 2015

COSHOCTON – Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) will hold a hands-on practical nursing open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, at the Coshocton Campus. Prospective students and visitors can tour the high-tech labs and experience state-of-the-art equipment. Throughout the event, admissions representatives and faculty will be available to answer questions.

A licensed practical nurse (LPN) works directly with registered nurses and doctors to provide patients with medical care. LPNs are responsible for administering nursing care and monitoring the patient’s health. LPNs may choose to work in long-term care and assisted living facilities, industrial settings, medical offices, private homes or acute care hospitals.

The practical nursing program at COTC offers a one year study plan. Students are immersed in a strong curriculum that provides a balance of general education and nursing courses, including carefully planned clinical laboratory experiences that encompass the care for persons of all age groups. COTC graduates of this program are awarded a Certificate Degree in Practical Nursing and are eligible to apply to take the licensing exam (NCLEX-PN).
