PAINTSVILLE – Students in the Practical Nursing (LPN) program at Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) visited the Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center Wound Healing Center on Tuesday, January 12.
“Wound management and perioperative nursing is very important,” said Charlene Carroll, assistant professor of nursing at BSCTC said. “It is important that students see the practice of these methods of nursing in person and communicate with those working in the field.”
For the past two years, all LPN program graduates have passed their Council Licensure Examination for Practical/Vocational Nurses (NCLEX-PN) on their first try and all of them are employed. Monica Jervis, instructional specialist, also joined students on the trip.
“Our nursing programs have provided our hospitals, physicians and other health care facilities with a steady flow of high skilled professionals,” said Myra Elliot, dean of academic affairs. “We are constantly reviewing trends and models to make sure we are providing the programs needed to keep quality health care close to home for the people of eastern Kentucky.”
