Practical Nursing

Established in 2003, the RTW school is an intense series of classroom, lab, clinical and preceptorship experiences, which prepare individuals to sit for the NCLEX examination, which ultimately leads to national licensure as a Practical Nurse, and entry-level employment in LPN positions.  RTW currently offers two programs; an accelerated day time class which starts in August and a hybrid day/evening class which consists of two evening classes and 2 day classes. Successful completion of coursework (culminating in a Certificate of Completion from ACC) combined with the passage of the board certification test will prepare an individual for positions which require the credential or make significant strides towards obtaining further licensure in the nursing field.
