The Western Iowa Tech Community College Executive Board of Directors will hold its monthly meeting at the Cherokee WITCC Campus on Monday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m.
A community reception will be held from 3-4 p.m. featuring public tours of the new nursing facility. Both the classroom and state-of-the-art simulation lab will be open to the public during that time.
The Cherokee campus recently underwent a significant renovation project to house its nursing program complete with classrooms and a fully equipped simulation lab.
WITCC offers several nursing programs for students wanting to pursue a nursing career. Once a student completes the Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate program or works as a CNA, they can enroll in the Practical Nursing (PN) diploma program. Practical Nursing is a one-year program available through WITCC at the Cherokee Campus, with a hybrid option available to Cherokee students.
The PN diploma prepares students for the NCLEX-PN exam in order to practice as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). When a student becomes an LPN, they progress into the second year of additional training with the Nursing-ADN program.
Graduates of the Associate Degree of Nursing program are prepared to write for the NCLEX-RN to practice as a Registered Nurse.
