Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute plans to add a new Health Sciences program in early 2019 that will provide students with another path to a career in Nursing and fill a vital need for local health care providers.

Pending state approval, CCC&TI will add Practical Nursing to its Health Sciences offerings on the Caldwell Campus in Hudson beginning in the Spring Semester of 2019.

The decision to add the program is based on a high demand for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and the demand from students wanting to pursue the 1-year diploma program.

CCC&TI currently offers a 2-year Associate Degree in Nursing, which allows students to test for Registered Nurse licensure.

Students would be required to meet certain General Education requirements to apply for the program.

An information session is scheduled for 5 pm May 16th on the Caldwell Campus in Hudson. For information call 828-726-2710.
