|Verve College, located in both Oak Brook and Chicago, offers the Practical Nursing program with flexible schedules to accommodate working students. Practical Nurses (PNs) care for the sick, injured, convalescent, and disabled under the direction of physicians and registered nurses.
Employment opportunities for Practical Nurses are expected to be excellent in the years to come. There is an expected growth of 21% from 2010-2020 for this area of nursing. The growing elderly population, which requires more care from trained personnel, and the general growth of healthcare, will also cause this job market to expand. Another area of exceptional growth for PNs will be in nursing homes. Long-term care of elderly patients will be an increasing concern to the nation’s health care system.
Verve College offers substantial resources for its students, incorporating simulation-learning, ATI, live NCLEX-PN reviews, HESI case studies, and free monthly tutoring.
