Nursing Program


Nurses play an essential role in the healthcare industry by providing care to individuals, families, and communities so they may improve their health, and prevent and heal illnesses and injuries.

NWACC's Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing is designed to provide students with a broad base of nursing knowledge, and prepare graduates for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and to function as Registered Nurses (RN). 

Graduates who earn RN license are prepared to provide client care at the beginning staff nurse level. Those who wish to pursue further education and/or a nursing specialty will have the necessary knowledge base to advance their professional career.
