1. Monroe Technology Center (MTC) uses the high school alternating block schedule model. This means that classes will meet every other day from 9:15 am to 3:15pm in the PN I year. MTC follows the Loudoun County Public School calendar.
2. A committee of teachers, counselors, administrators and health care professionals selects applicants. Application completion deadline is March 22, 2013. The decision of this committee will be mailed to your home in early May.
3. PN II classes currently meet at MTC on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Clinical rotations are on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week. The clinical sites and clinical days may vary widely EACH school year.
4. High School students must provide their own transportation to Monroe Technology Center, and to and from Loudoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for clinical rotations.
6. After acceptance, an expense list will be mailed to your home. High School students may borrow their textbooks in PN I but are required to buy them by the start of the PN II year. Adult students are required to buy all textbooks on the first day of school. Textbooks are approximately $500.00 total and are used for both years. PN I tuition and expenses are approximately $1260.00 for adults (this amount includes $500 in textbook fees) and $200.00 for high school students. This money is due the first day of school. There are no refunds once classes have begun.
7. After acceptance, along with the expense form, you will be mailed a health form. It is required that each student has a physical exam and a series of immunizations. The immunizations are standard for all healthcare workers and are detailed in the acceptance letter. All immunizations and TB Skin Test (TST) must be completed (or immunization series begun) by August 15. Send copies of the immunizations, TSTs and physical form to MTC one week prior to school starting. In an effort to help you plan your summer please note that the immunizations series may take a few months to complete.
8. After acceptance, the student must obtain a CPR certification from the American Heart Association. We will send a detailed letter of how the student will obtain this card during the summer of 2012. In most cases the high school student who has taken CPR through the public school system does not have the proper level of CPR that is required for working in a health care setting. If you already have the proper certification through your employer please make sure that your card will be valid for the TWO years that you are in nursing school. If it will expire before June 2014 please retake the CPR so that it will be valid until June 2014. You may also contact your local rescue squad for CPR instruction opportunities. If you do this please make sure that it is AHA for Healthcare providers! Send a copy of your CPR card in with your health physical and immunization record one week prior to school starting.
9. After acceptance, the student will be required to pass a criminal background check before any clinical rotations. We schedule this the first month of school. There is nothing you need to do for this requirement at this time. The fee for the background check will be reflected in your bill.
