The mission of the Fayette County Area Vocational Technical School is to prepare students for successful careers.

At Fayette County Area Vocational Technical School (FCAVTS), we prepare our students for life. Each student's unique personality and skill sets are matched with career opportunities to maximize their potential.

In today's competitive work environment, there are almost twice as many four year college graduates as jobs available - 43% of college graduates end up in jobs that do not require a college degree.

FCAVTS graduates land real jobs right away. Our students start meaningful careers upon graduation without the cost or hassle of a four year college.

We, the Faculty of the Fayette County Area Vocational-Technical School Practical Nursing Program, accept the Philosophy of the sponsoring institution. We believe that an educational opportunity that exist in Practical Nursing should be made available to any individual who meets the admission requirements, without regard to race, color, ethnic origin, creed, sex, age, marital status, or qualified handicap.

The Fayette County Area Vocational-Technical School sponsors the Practical Nursing Program. The Practical Nursing Program maintains approval from the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing, the Pennsylvania of Education, and has accreditation status from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission Inc. (NLNAC). Graduates of the Fayette County Area Vocational-Technical School Practical Nursing Program meet the educational requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing and are eligible to take the NCLEX-CAT-PN for licensure in the state of Pennsylvania.

The Practical Nursing Program is offered in one calendar year. The program is divided into three levels of instruction and totals 1554 hours of training. The program is designed for the full time student. Students are scheduled for seven hours of instruction daily, five days per week. Vacations and holidays are scheduled throughout the year.

To achieve the maximum benefit from the program, students are expected to attend all scheduled classes and clinical instruction sessions.

Nursing courses consist of both theory and clinical experience. Students learn to administer Nursing care to selected patients under the direct guidance of the program faculty.
