NYS Licensing Programs
Preparation courses provide approved training for the adult student to register for the required NYS licensing examination. In New York State, legislators determine which occupations to license. The New York State Education Department, under Regent’s direction, administers professional regulation through the Office of the Professions. The Adult Education Department is authorized by the Office of the Professions to offer three different preparation programs that culminate in state licensing.
- The Practical Nursing Program is under the direction of the NYS Office of the Professions (http://www.op.nysed.gov/prof/nurse/).
Practical Nursing: Enter a profession that is rooted to the Hippocratic Oath for doctors and the Florence Nightingale Pledge for nursing. The Program for Practical Nursing at the Jefferson-Lewis BOCES is fully accredited by the New York State Education Department.
