Nursing Mobility Program
PTC's Nursing Mobility program is offered for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) who desire to pursue an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing to become a registered nurse (RN). With an A.S. in Nursing, students are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX-RN) to become a registered nurse. Registered nurses with associate degrees are typically employed in hospitals, clinics, hospice care, long-term care, and assisted living facilities.
