Success – NWTC nursing graduates report greater than 90 percent job placement as RNs within six months of graduation. Expertise – classroom, lab and simulation instruction, extensive clinical experience at area hospitals, extended care facilities, and clinics, and service opportunities like work at the N.E.W. Clinic at NWTC, all provide hands-on patient care experience that helps make NWTC graduates effective on the job. This program is accredited by the ACEN: Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
