Bryant and Stratton College Launches Practical Nursing Program at Hampton Campus

Bryant & Stratton College in Virginia has launched a Practical Nursing (PN) Program at the Hampton Campus. The new program starts Sept. 7, 2022. Day and evening classes, along with weekday and weekend nursing labs and clinical opportunities, help make the program more accessible to students who are interested in pursuing a career as a licensed practical nurse.

Students will have the opportunity to learn current industry skills in the state-of-art simulation lab before they start their direct client care clinicals that are coordinated and supervised by the college’s nursing faculty. Community clinicals are offered in extended care facilities, rehabilitation centers, acute care hospitals and public schools.

“We’re thrilled to get our Practical Nursing Program started this fall,” said Dean Debi Erick, PhD©, MSN, PHN, RN, CNE, Dean of Nursing, Bryant & Stratton College. “We feel that various class times, weekday or weekend nursing labs and clinicals help set our program apart. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about nursing to attend our Meet & Greet event.”

The PN diploma prepares students for the NCLEX-PN exam. In as little as twelve months, graduates of Bryant & Stratton College’s Practical Nursing diploma will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) provided they meet the requirements of the state board of nursing.

Students who complete this program could also continue their education with the Nursing associate degree, as they are eligible to transfer credits from the Practical Nursing diploma to the Nursing degree program at Bryant & Stratton upon passing the NCLEX-PN. Bryant & Stratton College’s associate degree program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and Virginia Board of Nursing (BON) approved.

The new program joins a growing list of healthcare offerings at the Hampton campus, including degrees in Medical Assisting, Health Services Administration, Medical Billing and Coding and Medical Services Management. The academic programs at the Hampton, Virginia Beach and Richmond campuses are certified by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV).
