2020 Nursing Cohort Enters Front Lines of COVID-19 Pandemic

The 2020 Nursing Cohort at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College has successfully completed their program and will enter the workforce amid the coronavirus pandemic.  

Eastern admits new students to a nursing cohort every two years. The Nursing Program is designed to prepare the Associate Degree Program graduate for practice as a registered nurse once licensure requirements are satisfied. The curriculum requirements include the biological, physical, and behavioral sciences consisting of medical-surgical nursing and mental health concepts and psychiatric nursing. The program is committed to providing accessible, high-quality nursing education to meet the diverse and changing healthcare needs of the community and beyond.  

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the nursing students will find they are in high demand.  Many have received job offers at local hospitals, while some continue to seek out their desired career path. May 6th is National Nurses Day and marks the start of National Nurses Week. Eastern wants to recognize and congratulate the nursing graduates for their hard work during their time in the program and entering the workforce as healthcare heroes on the front lines. Thank you, Nurses!
