The Health and Human Services Division at York Technical College hosts an accredited Nursing program that produces excellent nurses with a commitment to providing top-notch client care.

As a nursing major, you will be prepared to provide direct patient care to patients in your community, learning the foundations of subject areas such as anatomy and physiology, chemistry, microbiology, and psychology. You'll also take courses that teach you the nursing process, as well as the social skills you need to interact with patients and their families, such as caring, communication, critical thinking, and others. By the time you complete your coursework, you'll be ready to ace the Computer Adaptive Testing National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), which you must pass to become a registered nurse.

In addition to learning from instructors with years of experience in the classroom, you'll participate in clinical training to put your skills to use, working alongside registered nurses to provide patients with care and treatment for their specific needs. This clinical experience will prepare you for your future role and will help you craft a resume that lets you stand out among other graduates in your field.

Unlike at other nursing schools, York Tech's Nursing program requires you to rotate around to a variety of medical settings, such as hospitals, doctor's offices, community health agencies, and long-term care facilities.
