PCC Nursing to host Open House for interested students

28 March 2019

The Pratt Community College Nursing Program is hosting an Open House Tuesday, April 23 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Chandler Hall and Wednesday, April 24 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Winfield Campus for anyone interested in learning more about the program and what it has to offer.
This academic year, PCC Chandler School of Nursing introduced a blended classroom delivery method for theory instruction utilizing face-to-face and synchronous video conferencing. This video conferencing system allows students to attend a “Zoom Room” which provides remote conferencing services using cloud technology. Each Pratt classroom is equipped with two 75 inch and one 55 inch high-definition television along with a 10 foot by 6 foot high-definition video projector screen. Each Winfield classroom is equipped with three 75 inch and one 55 inch high-definition television. Video output from the classroom can be customized to display the instructor, presentation material, and/or remote classroom.
The decision to introduce this new method of delivery was based on the following factors:

  • To maintain consistent education delivery at multiple locations.
  • A shortage of qualified nurse educators in the state of Kansas.
  • To maximize the benefit of faculty expertise.
  • To maximize the use of PCC resources.

If you are considering attending PCC Chandler School of Nursing or are simply interested in the new technology, please join us during our Open House. If you are unable to attend the Open House, please feel free to contact the Nursing Department at 620-450-2233 for further details or to schedule a tour.
