Mon Health – WVJC Partnership


Mon Health System and West Virginia Junior College have partnered to create the WVJC School of Nursing at Mon Health Vandalia Health, serving the healthcare needs of North Central West Virginia. This collaboration brings together two of Morgantown’s trusted institutions to provide a high level of care for area residents.

Mon Health System exists as an integrated network of hospitals, physician clinics, and outpatient centers. It includes five hospitals – Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown; Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingwood; Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston; Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital in White Hall; and affiliate, Grafton City Hospital in Grafton.

West Virginia Junior College Morgantown is one of three WVJC residential campuses located in West Virginia, with the other two in Bridgeport and Charleston. The colleges offer Associate Degrees in Nursing, Allied Health, Business, and Information Technology. In 2013, WVJC began offering education training through an online platform.

“WVJC Online was an experience I’ll never forget! The friendly instructors and

staff really made it all worthwhile!” – Jacob Yokum, WVJC Graduate

Direct Admission Mon Health Scholars Program


WVJC School of Nursing at Mon Health Vandalia Health employs a direct admission option so incoming students can immediately start in the nursing program when offered and will not be required to take pre-nursing classes.

The Mon Health Scholars program provides WVJC School of Nursing students with financial resources for tuition, books, and academic fees. Nursing students will complete their didactic coursework through WVJC’s online platform and satisfy most of their lab and clinical rotations within the Mon Health network.

The online component of the WVJC School of Nursing at Mon Health Vandalia Health offers students some flexibility and convenience so they can balance life and college simultaneously. This online program also creates opportunities through the regional Mon Health System to accept students who reside near their facilities.

Graduates will be conferred an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCELX-RN)* and are prepared to begin employment through the Mon Health network or other healthcare facilities.

*Passing the NCLEX – RN exam is required to become a Registered Nurse.

“The instructors were helpful and they genuinely cared about your education and provided the help you would need in any situation. They definitely go above and beyond!”

– Shaela Duley, WVJC Graduate

Your Career in Nursing


Nursing careers provide compassionate individuals with the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. Nurses comfort patients and their families during some of their most challenging times, and they are also there to support and celebrate with patients through treatment and recovery.

Nursing also offers many pathways for career satisfaction, medical specializations, and career growth. Nursing is a stable and respectable field of study. Nurses may choose career paths such as critical care nurse, pediatric nurse, education, or numerous other areas of concentration.
