The Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center offers high school students the opportunity to combine academic and vocational preparation to achieve personal fulfillment, responsible citizenship, and economic self-sufficiency. While offering 23 occupational programs, the Tech Center prepares students for entry-level jobs and provides them with the ability to advance beyond entry-level positions.

The practical nursing program offers an eighteen-month course of study for high school seniors and adults. The program is divided into three courses: Practical Nursing I VO8357), Practical Nursing II (VO 8358), and Practical Nursing III (VO 8359). Practical Nursing I is held first semester and Practical Nursing II is held second semester. Practical Nursing I offers classroom and laboratory performances. Practical Nursing II offers classroom, laboratory, and clinical skill performances. Successful completion of both courses earns the high school senior 3 units of credit and satisfies the 2 sequential electives requirement. Practical Nursing III offers subject matter concurrent with nursing care assignments in local hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and physician's offices.

Upon successful completion of theory, laboratory and clinical objectives in Practical Nursing I and Practical Nursing II, the student may elect to take the Certified Nurse Aide, C.N.A., exam to become a Certified Nurse Aide. Passing this exam prior to high school graduation earns the high school senior a verified unit of credit and the Technical and Career Education Seal on his/her high school diploma. Upon successful completion of all program objectives, the program graduate is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination - Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) to become a licensed practical/vocational nurse.
