Enter a profession that is rooted to the Hippocratic Oath for doctors and the Florence Nightingale Pledge for nursing. Engage in the sacred union between caregiver and patient. New York State is considered one of the states with high employment rates, high concentration of jobs and high wages for practical nurses. The industry includes nursing care facilities, general medical and surgical hospitals, long-term care and assisted living communities, and much more.
The Practical Nursing Program reduces the time commitment and financial obligations of a college program. This 10-month program results in NYS certification that is transferable to most states and offers access to financial assistance. Classes run from September through June at the Bohlen Technical Center in Watertown, NY (no classes July and August).
The Program for Practical Nursing at the Jefferson-Lewis BOCES is accredited by the New York State Education Department. Graduates are eligible to register for the New York State Licensing Examination for Practical Nurse (NCLEX-PN).
