Finger Lakes Features: Finger Lakes Community College’s New Nursing Program

A ceremony at Finger Lakes Community College on Thursday, August 2nd celebrated the first graduates of a new training program to provide advancement for entry-level health care workers.

The 21 graduates completed a program that allowed them to take classes to become licensed practical nurses (LPNs) while maintaining an income to support themselves and their families. All began as certified nurse assistants (CNAs) and took classes for 20 hours a week over the last year while working for 20 hours.

The CNA to LPN Program is facilitated by FLCC in partnership with the Rochester Educational Opportunity Center at SUNY Brockport, Rochester Regional Health, RochesterWorks!, and Finger Lakes Works.
