Orientation for Nursing Students Welcomes 128

Orientation for students accepted into the nursing program at Northeast Alabama Community College was held recently. A total of 128 students attended the session. Topics covered included nursing class schedules, clinical rotations, and program requirements. Fall semester classes begin for these students on August 19.

“The students are eager to begin their nursing career at Northeast,” said Dr. Cindy Jones, Director of Nursing Education at NACC. “The Health Education Building provides many learning opportunities for students. The facility is designed with large lecture halls, a hospital simulated lab, student study rooms, and a student lounge equipped with computer terminal stations.”

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition, overall job opportunities for registered nurses are expected to be excellent. Employment of registered nurses is expected to grow by 22 percent through 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations. For more information go to
