Rasmussen College recently announced a new Practical Nursing program (PN) to open on its Tampa/Brandon, FL campus. The diploma courses will be offered on evenings and weekends beginning in April 2018 to help accommodate growing healthcare needs in the community and ensure that those seeking nursing education can find programs that fit into their schedules.
The Tampa Metro area has seen high demand for LPNs with 72 percent growth in demand compared to five years ago according to the labor analytics firm Burning Glass. The PN diploma program has been approved by the Florida Board of Nursing and will also offer flexibility and cost savings through Flex Choice, a learning option that allows students to combine traditional courses with optional self-directed assessments.
Eymie Fitzgerald, Rasmussen College Tampa/Brandon campus Dean of Nursing, tells PRNewswire.com:
“Like most communities nationwide, the Tampa metro is feeling the need for highly skilled LPNs, a need that has shown dramatic growth in the past five years. In addition to preparing graduates for the NCLEX-PN exam, the Rasmussen College PN Diploma program provides students with hands-on training in a supportive environment led by experienced nurse faculty. The program has no pre-nursing course requirements or wait list, so qualified students can be on their way to a career as an LPN and help fill the growing needs of the community in as few as 12 months.”
