“I’ve been searching for what to do with my life and I have finally found it,” — Carson Drake, Adult Practical Nursing 2020 graduate.
This full-time program prepares students for one of the fastest-growing and most in-demand jobs in the nation. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 11 percent increase in demand for LPNs between now and 2028. That, coupled with the fact that LPNs earned a median salary nationally in 2019 of $47,480, makes it the right time to enter this exciting field.
The full-time program runs for 10 months; the part-time program runs for 18 months. Classes are taught on the Albany campus of our Career & Technical Education center.
The state-approved Adult Practical Nursing Program at the Capital Region BOCES Career & Technical School encompasses 1,100 hours of classroom and clinical study and practice.
