    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ the Registered Nursing (RN) profession is expected to grow from 2.7 million in 2014 to 3.2 million in 2024, for a total number of job openings being approximately 1.09 million by 2024. You can start your nursing future here at Tech High at Seminole, and receive your Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), which will lead to a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) license. Our program differs from other medical programs by teaching content through the nursing model of prevention and whole health so that you may sit for the LPN license exam shortly after graduation. Having your LPN license allows to enter the workforce directly, as well as the ability to earn a great wage while working toward a higher degree post high school.
