Pandemic Drives Increased Demand for Nurses

| By: Britten, Casey

Healthcare work has taken on new significance since the start of the pandemic. As a result, enrollment in the FVTC Nursing-RN Associate Degree program has increased by 12% in the past year.

In response to the increased demand, the college has increased capacity by adding more instructors, equipment and clinical opportunities for students.

Beyond the associate degree Nursing program, there are a variety of other program options available to train for a career in healthcare, with more capacity for students as well as a quicker path to a job. Learn more about all healthcare career options at FVTC >>
