Nursing & Allied Health Division

At Northwest State Community College offers nursing and allied health degree and certificate programs that prepare students to meet the rapidly changing demands of the healthcare industry. Students benefit from small class sizes as they work one-on-one with faculty members who are dedicated to inspiring and challenging students.There are also opportunities to transfer into a four-year degree program at partnering institutions.

Graduates of the nursing programs are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) and enter directly into the workforce.
