Northeast costs significantly less than many other nursing programs. We’d love for you to visit with us to find out more about what makes us special.

Nurses work in all medical facilities and specialties. Since nurses are needed all over the world, they are often in high demand. Nursing salaries vary drastically depending upon location, experience, specialty, shifts and other factors.

Education information:

The nursing program at NTCC is an innovative, modern, nursing program designed to bring real world meaning to content knowledge and skills. As such, NTCC has adopted the Texas Concept Based Curriculum and implemented a hybrid flipped classroom approach to instruction. Instead of the traditional instructional model, the lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures, readings, and assignments are done at home before class sessions, and in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects, and discussion. Students must be prepared to embrace a non-traditional model of instruction and work outside their comfort zone. Students who are concerned with this method of instruction are highly encouraged to visit with the program director prior to application and gain a full understanding of the program expectations. NTCC is committed to producing nursing graduates with not only the knowledge of nursing practice but also with the ability to apply this knowledge in complex and varied situations.
