Vance-Granville Community College is offering virtual information sessions for anyone interested in applying to the Nursing programs at the college. VGCC offers training options to become a Registered Nurse (RN) through the Associate Degree Nursing program or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) through the Practical Nursing program.

The upcoming sessions, offered through Zoom ( www.zoom.us ), are specifically geared to help prospective students prepare to apply to enroll in a Nursing program for the Fall 2021 semester. Applications for these programs are due in February and March of 2021.

Three of the sessions will focus on the RN and LPN programs. In the past, students who were not offered a spot in the Associate Degree Nursing program were able to enroll in the Practical Nursing program instead, making this a beneficial option for many students who are ready to get started with their nursing careers.

These are scheduled for Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. ( bit.ly/VGCCNursing102920 ), Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. ( bit.ly/VGCCNursing111720 ), and Dec. 2 at 6 p.m. ( bit.ly/VGCCNursing120220 ).

Two other sessions will focus on the Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) program. This partnership between VGCC and North Carolina A&T State University allows students to complete both the Associate Degree Nursing, or RN, program, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.

These sessions are scheduled for Nov. 13 at 2 p.m. ( bit.ly/RIBN111320 ) and Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. ( bit.ly/RIBN120320 ).

After registering, participants should receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting.

Registration in advance for each session is required. For more information, please email Dr. Erica Jastrow (Practical Nursing and RIBN programs) at jastrowe@vgcc.edu or Dr. Anna Seaman (Associate Degree Nursing program) at seamana@vgcc.edu .
