The Chesapeake Center for Science and Technology offers an 18 nursing program designed for qualified adults and high school seniors. The Practical Nursing Program offered in two parts is approved by the Virginia Board of Nursing.
Students who successfully complete the program earn a certificate of completion and are eligible to apply to sit for the National Licensure Examination to be licensed practical nurses.
The curriculum concentrates on various elements incorporating human anatomy, nutrition, medical-surgical nursing, and drug therapy amongst other fundamentals of nursing. Students are offered a limited opportunity for practical experience at clinical rotations offered at local healthcare facilities.
Chesapeake is affiliated with Chesapeake General Hospital and the Naval Medical Center as well as two long term care institutions in the local community.
