This innovative program will deliver an associate degree nursing program online to students in rural counties of West Virginia. Lab training will occur through local partnerships and a state-of-the-art Mobile Simulation Lab (MSL). Students will attend clinical experiences in their local rural communities. This exciting program is the first of its kind in the state of West Virginia. Looking forward, WVJC plans to continue to expand its nursing offerings both vertically and horizontally.
