About the LPN Program

State Fair Community College-Clinton (SFCC-Clinton) will assume sponsorship of Clinton Technical School’s Practical Nursing program, effective January of 2024, after this year’s cohort of students graduates.

Representatives from the Clinton School District and State Fair Community College have worked collaboratively to make this transition as smooth as possible for those in the area who wish to begin or continue their education in nursing. Not only does this transfer of sponsorship ensure that a Practical Nursing program continues to be available in the Clinton community, it also allows students to seamlessly transition to State Fair Community College’s advanced nursing programs.

Tara Weber, SFCC Year 1 Program Director said, “Clinton and its surrounding communities have been tremendous supporters of SFCC. We are fortunate to have a great partnership with the Clinton School District, including their PN program. Retaining a PN program in the Clinton area was the goal for everyone involved. We look forward to continuing this program, providing opportunity and meeting workforce needs, with the #1 Nursing program in Missouri.”

SFCC’s Year 1 Practical Nursing students are able to move directly into the Year 2 Associates Degree in Nursing (RN). The Year 2 program began at the SFCC-Clinton Campus in 2019, providing a local pathway to RN for licensed Practical Nurses and licensed Paramedics.

“It has been a pleasure working with SFCC-Clinton over the past few months,” says Melissa Batusic, Director of Clinton Technical School. “The Clinton School District believes that this program is vital to our community, and that it can be better supported under the adult education that SFCC-Clinton provides.”
