Mission Statements and Visions

Clinton Technical School’s Mission: To Prepare All Students for Productive Living.

Philosophy and Vision: It is the vision of Clinton Technical School that one of the fundamental rights of each individual is equal access to educational opportunity. Each person who receives the benefits of our educational services will have the opportunity to develop intellectually, socially and technically. Technical education provides the opportunity to develop skills and work habits needed to enter and progress in useful and productive employment. Because a comprehensive education is necessary in today’s world, technical education, which has both cultural and utilitarian values, should supplement and build on the foundation the core program has provided. Technical education is not intended to replace the core or academic curriculum, nor is it intended to limit training to manual dexterity for the world of work.

PN Philosophy and Mission: The philosophy and the mission of the Practical Nursing Program at Clinton Technical School will adhere to the policies, procedures and philosophies of both the Clinton School District and the Clinton Technical School. The Practical Nursing Program at Clinton Technical School will prepare adult men and women to function safely and effectively as entry-level practical nurses within the guidelines established by the Missouri Nurse Practice Act. Graduates will become an integral part of the multidisciplinary healthcare team, and, after the eleven month curriculum, will be eligible to apply to take the state licensing examination for Licensed Practical Nurses.

The faculty believes in the human dignity of the individual regardless of condition, race, nationality, creed, sexual orientation, or handicap. The faculty provides the student with a basic knowledge of biological and social sciences in hopes the student will apply this knowledge to meet the emotional, physical, spiritual, and social needs of patients.

The educational program encompasses the restorative, promotion and maintenance of physical and mental health, and the prevention of illness for individuals and groups throughout the life cycle. The faculty will teach these concepts using a variety of methods suited to adult learning, relating previous experiences to newly presented material. The program will begin with a solid foundation and gradually build with more complex subjects of theory and practice. The Practical Nursing curriculum will provide learning experiences that are conducive to adherence to high levels of competency and ethical standards needed to become a Licensed Practical Nurse.
