Dear Prospective Nursing Student,
The nursing faculty of Westchester Community College welcome you; we are delighted that you are considering a career in nursing. Professional nursing is a dynamic career with many opportunities. The heart of nursing at Westchester Community College will always be caring, academic excellence and professionalism. The WCC nursing faculty is dedicated to working with you to achieve your academic and professional success. We aspire to provide an excellent educational experience that results in outstanding graduates that are prepared to assume roles in professional nursing and who are competent to advance to graduate education.
We are committed to effectively guiding you to become a professional nurse ready to meet today’s health care challenges. As healthcare changes, you will be ready to integrate technology, utilize data, apply evidence-based findings, and creatively plan solutions for the best patient outcomes. You will have the skills needed to be members of multi-disciplinary teams and work collaboratively to meet the holistic needs of patients and families. Health promotion, safety, and quality improvement will be equally as important as you coordinate patient care.
Our graduates are highly respected and serve in many capacities throughout Westchester county and beyond. Our NCLEX pass rate consistently far surpasses both the state and national levels.
It is of utmost importance that you meet with an academic advisor before you enroll for classes. The advisors, particularly our Health Science advisor, Professor Sabrina Hochberg will assist you in selecting the essential pre-requisite program requirements and explain how you can successfully apply to our program. Professor Hochberg may be reached at 914-606-6381.
We also strongly suggest that you attend one of the Information Sessions given by our Admissions Department. You may register for one of the sessions by calling 914-606-6735.
