Sharon Regional School of Nursing and Sharon Regional School of Radiography Announce a Combined Open House for Prospective Students
Open House Scheduled for Graduating Class of 2020
The Sharon Regional School of Nursing and The Sharon Regional School of Radiography are joining together to hold an open house to meet with those interested in pursuing careers as either a Registered Nurse or as a Registered Radiology Technologist. The Open House is scheduled for Thursday, November 2 from 4 – 7 PM at the School located at 740 East State Street in Sharon.
Both the School of Nursing and School of Radiography are preparing for the next incoming classes of students who will graduate in 2020 and offer flexibility and convenience and can be completed in 18 – 24 months.
The School of Nursing, through an agreement with Penn State Shenango, offers students a unique opportunity to seamlessly earn both a diploma in nursing from Sharon Regional and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the Penn State Shenango campus. An additional articulation agreement is in place with Slippery Rock University. A large majority of the students enrolled in the School of Nursing qualify for and receive financial aid and grants. Additionally, scholarships are available from a variety of sources. Prospective applicants can meet faculty, attend a presentation on the application process and pre-entrance (TEAS) test, receive information on financial assistance, and tour the facilities.
Admission to the School of Nursing requires the completion of a pre-entrance exam or Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) test and school application. Completed applications and passing TEAS scores are due on or before Feb 15, 2018 for consideration for the graduating class of 2020, which begins in August of 2018. Admission and TEAS test instructions are available through the Admission and Financial Aid section on the web site.
Sharon Regional School of Nursing is recognized by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) and approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.
The School of Radiography is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). JRCERT is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit educational programs in radiography and radiation therapy. This hospital-based certificate program prepares students to be qualified entry-level radiographers.
In addition, the School of Radiography, through an agreement with Butler Community College (BC3), offers students the chance to earn their Certificate from Sharon Regional and their Associate’s Degree from BC3 which is the minimum requirement for candidates to sit for their National Registry Exam. In addition we also have an agreement with Clarion University which allows a student to earn their BS degree in a two plus two program. Individuals interested in discussing this growing field including the application process and getting a tour of the school are encouraged to attend the open house.
The admission process for the School of Radiography includes a pre-entrance test call the ACCUPLACER exam which is administered through BC3. Each student needs to complete an application, have taken the pre-entrance test, and provided the program with all necessary paperwork by January 31, 2018. Those qualifying candidates will be called for an interview with the Admissions Committee, and those chosen will be a part of the graduating Class of 2020, with classes beginning in August of 2018.
