    Valley Career and Technical Center's School of Practical Nursing program has created a culture that embraces the functions of mentoring, role modeling and caring for each student holistically. Each student's qualities and gifts as a caregiver are enhanced through encouraging personal, professional, spiritual, and emotional growth. This growth and development is essential for entry level LPN's as they prepare to enter the ever-changing healthcare environment ready to meet the needs of and the challenges presented by individuals in their care. The program maintains the high standards of academic attainment and employment success through the interaction of a committed faculty and sincerely invested students. These high expectations are substantiated by 2020 #3 ranking by Nursing Schools Almanac Nursing Schools Almanac 2020 and #1 ranking (in Virginia) by Practical Nursing.org in 2016. Our program is Approved through the Virginia Board of Education and Virginia Board of Nursing.
