CTC’s Nursing programs prepare students with the knowledge, skills and hands-on training to work in a variety of settings including hospitals, physicians’ offices, home health care services and nursing care facilities. With experienced faculty, state-of-the-art equipment and a simulation hospital, students are exposed to many avenues of learning. Our courses are offered in a lecture, online and blended format and includes hands-on patient care led by dedicated clinical faculty. CTC also provides the foundation to further your nursing education into advanced degrees that can propel you into the profession as advanced practice nurses, nurse practitioners, educators, clinical specialists and certified nurse anesthetists among others.

As a registered nurse (RN), you will provide and coordinate patient care, educate patients and the public and provide guidance and emotional support to patients and their family members. As a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), you will provide basic nursing care and work alongside registered nurses and doctors.
