Educational preparation toward a career in a health profession will open up a world of opportunities to you. The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a “faster than average” to “much faster than average” growth in each of our allied health and nursing preparation areas for the years 2010-2020, including the projected need for approximately 712,000 new nurses by the year 2020. Wallace Community College is ready for the challenge our nation’s health care shortage brings and wants to meet your individual education needs. This projected employment growth in healthcare is driven by technological advancements, an increased emphasis on preventative care, and the aging population who will demand more healthcare services as they live longer and more active lives.
The College offers seven different entry-level fields of study for your future needs, including Associate Degree Nursing (RN), Practical Nursing (LPN), Emergency Medical Services (EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic), Medical Assisting (Medical Assistant, Phlebotomy, and Transcription), Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology, and Respiratory Therapist. In addition, Registered Nurses, both graduates of our ADN program and others within the community, also have the opportunity to achieve career mobility toward their bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) through RN to BSN mobility partnerships established with four-year institutions within our state. Specific information about each of our health programs and RN to BSN mobility, along with contact information for the faculty and staff, is available through links provided within this site. Our program faculty are educationally and professionally qualified and seek to prepare graduates for success on national credentialing examinations and gainful employment in the health care workforce.
