Petition Calling to Urge the Joint Operating Committee to hire from the existing faculty of the Wilkes Barre Career & Technical Center LPN program promptly to preserve the continuity of success and to ensure the readiness of the upcoming academic year.


To the Members of the Joint Operating Committee, this petition of the Wilkes Barre Career and Technical Center (WBCTC) Licensed Practical Nurse Program Student Body & Alumni brings to the attention of the Committee:
The WBCTC Licensed Practical Nurse program was established in 1959 due to the post war nursing shortages of the 1950’s. This endeavor was based out of necessity to provide bedside nurses to the workforce in a quick and efficient manner.

59 years later the school has seen over 6,000 graduates with 100% workforce placement rates of nurses actively seeking work in the community. The diverse roles that these graduates have secured in the nursing community as primary caregivers in long term care centers, home health, and clinics speaks volumes to the quality of education received and the trust that is invested in the current faculty and curriculum.


The undersigned Student Body and Alumni respectfully ask that the Joint Committee hire from the existing faculty in order to preserve the success of our program. The current faculty and curriculum should be retained in order to ensure the continued success of this program and a prompt start for the upcoming class. An outsourced hiring process would hinder the existing objectives of an already successful endeavor and thereby compromising the future of this program.


As students and working professionals of this community, all trained by the WBCTC LPN program, we ask that you take into consideration our plea. The school continues to thrive and deliver nursing professionals that are reliable, professional, and selfless. Do not attempt to fix that which is not broken.
