School of Commerce
Practical Nursing Program
The Dryades YMCA’s School of Commerce has a long history in this community and the Practical Nursing Program has been producing Practical nurses since 2007. Our program boasts a schedule conducive to working adults as our classes take place in the evening Monday – Thursday, from 5:00 pm – 10:30 pm in the evening.
All of our instructors are Registered Nurses who teach the classroom training, combined with hands-on applications, which are provided in a lab setting, as the base for instruction. Clinical rotations are held in local hospitals and assisted living facilities.
The cost is $24,000 with some opportunities for financial aid. Please call or visit our location at 2220 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard and speak with the Admissions Counselor Wanda Talton, who will answer any other questions you may have.
