Compare This School


The Crawford County Career and Technical Center offers a variety of courses for adult students, from online classes and dual enrollment for high school students to full-time medical training programs. The Practical Nursing Program dates back to 1969, when the first class graduated after the twelve-month course load ended.


The program is a 12-month course of study which begins annually in July. Students who have completed all of the necessary clinical trials and coursework will graduate the following June. In total, 3 trimesters consisting of 16 weeks apiece are attended by the students. The class schedule never varies from weekdays beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing to 3 p.m. in the afternoon. The exception comes with the clinicals, which begin an hour earlier at 7 a.m. Numerous different healthcare facilities in the area will be the site of student clinicals – including Westbury Methodist Home and Meadville Medical Center – while all classes will be held at the school’s location at 860 Thurston Road in Meadville.

Accredited is granted by the National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission, based in Atlanta. Pennsylvania’s Board of Nursing and the PA Dept. of Education have delivered approvals of the CCCTC Practical Nursing Program as well.

The admissions process for is laid out on the school website and other publications. Because of the July date on which the annual program begins, applications are only accepted beginning January 15 and ending March 15. A nonrefundable application fee will be charged at the time the application is submitted. Students can apply online or pick up an application in person at the admissions office at 860 Thurston Road. High school and GED forms, as well as any other post-secondary transcripts, should be forwarded to the same address.

Admissions policies will first include a review of transcripts and experience in the field. Students with some nursing education already completed will be preferred. A program admissions test will be given to students, with those scoring 70 or better eligible to have their full application reviewed. Following these reviews, an applicant must demonstrate sound health (both physically and mentally) and submit clean records in terms of both criminal record and child abuse history. In some cases, students may receive Advanced Placement, if all previous educational cycles are approved.

Financial Aid

At some point before the beginning of the academic year, students will be able to take part in a Financial Aid Day. Crawford County Career and Technical Center Financial Aid Officers will be able to walk students through the process. The guidelines of federal student aid programs are clearly laid out on different websites. Students who hope to gain access to any of these aid programs must complete the FAFSA, which is now available online. Scholarships from local and regional sources are available, as well as grants, loans and work-study jobs.
