The Nursing program provides a comprehensive education that will help you launch a career in health care. The program’s innovative approach to nursing education is designed to help you succeed as a professional in the health care area of your choice. The program features small class sizes, state-of-the-art learning labs, and clinical experiences in a variety of health care settings.

LWTech's Nursing program offers an Associated in Applied Science Transfer (AAS-T) degree in Nursing and Nursing Assistant Certificate of Completion (CNA). 

Admission Requirements

Nursing AAS-T

Admission to the Nursing AAS-T program is different from admission to other college programs because students are selected on a competitive basis called Selective Admission. This program has additional application and qualification requirements with application deadlines unique to the program.

Prerequisites must be completed prior to applying for admission to the Nursing AAS-T program. Prerequisites can be taken under the Health Sciences program, which isn't Selective Admission.  

Students interested in this program are strongly advised to attend a Nursing AAS-T Information Session.

Admission Application FAQs

All students accepted into the nursing program are required to attend a mandatory nursing orientation. No exceptions will be made. Failure to attend the mandatory orientation will result in the student's withdrawal from the nursing cohort.
