Suncoast Technical College is celebrating the August 4th, 2016 graduation class of 29 new practical nurses. These smiling faces will be completing their Florida State Board examinations and become Licensed Practical Nurses in the next few weeks. The class was quickly engaged in local healthcare facilities. 40% of these graduates were hired prior to graduation! SNAC can also report that over 60% of these graduates have already applied to begin the next level of nursing through an associate or bachelor’s degree program to become a registered nurse. Our congratulations to each of these new practical nurses and to the nursing faculty at Suncoast Technical College. Well done!
