Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

HAMPTON—The Bryant & Stratton campus located at Peninsula Town Center in Hampton will be offering a program in nursing beginning in the fall of 2022. To introduce the new program, the school will be hosting a meet-and-greet event on Thursday, June 30 so people interested in nursing can speak with health care professionals and enrollment personnel.

According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, licensed practical nurses (LPNs) make slightly more than $48,000 per year. Many local hospitals and medical offices are also offering hiring bonuses. In addition, there is a growing demand for nurses, with the number of job vacancies projected to increase 9 percent annually.

LPNs have an opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including nursing homes and extended care facilities, hospitals, physicians’ offices, and private homes.

The program is expected to offer both classroom and clinical experiences that will prepare students to become licensed practical nurses. To RSVP for the meet-and-greet, call 757-896-6001. The campus is located at 4410 E. Claiborne Square, Suite 233 in Hampton. For additional information on the program, click here.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
