Thank you for your interest in nursing at WVU Tech. As a department within the West Virginia University School of Nursing, we envision optimal health, enhanced quality of life, and excellent health care for the people of West Virginia and the global community. In order to contribute to this vision, WVU Tech Department of Nursing is the only public institution in the southern part of West Virginia to offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The curriculum is the same as offered in Morgantown with the advantage of smaller class sizes and faculty who really get to know the students as individuals in order to meet their educational needs. Students benefit from state-of-the-art simulation equipment to the nursing skills lab and have the advantage of clinical experiences in both large teaching hospitals and rural settings. The BSN program is fully accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses.
Our graduates have job placement in a variety of health care settings including hospitals and community health agencies. Many of our graduates have continued on to graduate programs and become nurse practitioners, nurse educators, nurse administrators, nurse anesthetists, and nurse midwives.
Throughout their time at WVU Tech, our students are active in community service activities which promote the health of our community. Examples of their community service projects include providing social opportunities for the elderly at Montgomery General Hospital; participating in the Alzheimers walk; providing health education to a variety of populations in the community; participating in community health fairs; assisting with annual flu shot clinics; providing Thanksgiving meals and Christmas gifts to the needy in the community; and collecting infant care items for new mothers.
Become part of a dynamic career with endless opportunities and become an alumni an outstanding school, WVU School of Nursing and WVU Tech Department of Nursing.
