CLTCC launching night LPN classes in Alexandria, Ferriday in 2022

Local News

Alexandria, La., October 5, 2021 — Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC)
is now accepting applications for evening Practical Nursing classes at its Ferriday and
Alexandria campuses starting with the Spring 2022 semester on January 18, 2022.

“We are constantly getting interest from students for nursing evening classes. So many have a
goal – a dream – of becoming a nurse. However, work and/or family responsibilities does not
allow them to enroll in a traditional, Monday through Friday day program. CLTCC is about to
make that dream a reality,” said Ferriday Campus Dean and CLTCC Dean of Nursing and Allied
Health Mignonne Ater, MSN, RN, CNE.

“This is the first time we have offered a night class option in Ferriday, and it has been more than
a decade since we offered a night class option for practical nursing in Alexandria,” noted
CLTCC Chancellor Dr. Jimmy Sawtelle. “There is such a critical need at this time for qualified
nurses and health care professionals. CLTCC is committed to doing everything we can to meet
the employment needs of the communities we serve, and we are excited to provide expanded
opportunities for local students to pursue their dream of getting a high-paying, in-demand job
here in Central Louisiana.”

The evening program will offer evening/night classes three to four evenings per week with
occasional Saturdays for skills labs and clinical experiences.
