Pamelia Isham graduated from the Practical Nursing Program in December 2013, ending another phase of her education at P.I.T. She completed an A.S. degree in Allied Health in 2011 and plans to follow her PN certification with a Bridge Program to obtain her RN degree and work as a Surgical Nurse. Working full time as a Surgical Tech, Pamelia sought a program that allowed her to maintain her income and care for her three children. She discovered P.I.T.’s Evening/Weekend Program and never looked back. “P.I.T. offered more hands-on learning with plenty of one-on-one time with my instructors. There was a lot of clinical work in the classroom before we ever set foot on the facility floor,” she says. “The instructors have a lot of knowledge from their time in the field at the job they are training us to do. It’s tough, but when you get the answers right, there is a true sense of pride. “The Nursing staff knows their students. They know your strengths and push you when you need that to succeed.”
