South College Nashville expands two healthcare programs
South College is expanding the Associate of Science in Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) and Certificate in Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) programs at its Nashville campus.
The PTA program is expanding from one annual cohort to two, with the new cohort starting in the fall 2021 quarter. The fall cohort will be offered in a hybrid model, with both online and on campus classes. Another cohort will start in the spring quarter of 2022.
The LPN program is adding two additional cohorts for a total of four, with one class now starting every quarter.
“South College Nashville is known for offering high-quality healthcare programs,” said Nick South, president of the Nashville campus. “Growing our programs through cohort additions expand opportunities for the PTA and LPN programs to more students, which in turn will benefit more communities in our region.”
Applications are currently being accepted, and students who are interested in either program are encouraged to apply now to South College to complete prerequisite courses, if needed.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for physical therapist assistants will grow 29 percent and the job growth outlook for licensed practical nurses is 9 percent through 2029, both growing at rates much faster than the average for all occupations.
