OVCT’s Nursing Degree Program Is Just 24 Months!

OVCT’s School of Nursing strives to prepare nursing students to provide quality patient care. Nurses save lives and make a difference by bringing people hope and comfort as they struggle to deal with difficult situations concerning themselves or loved ones.

Before you can become a nurse, however, you need to receive well-rounded, specialized nursing training to help prepare you for the variety of patient challenges and medical situations you may encounter throughout your career. OVCT can provide you with specialized nursing training through our hands-on labs and local clinicals. We also offer a direct admissions policy which means you won’t waste time taking classes not related to nursing!

If you are a caring, understanding, and empathetic person, then you have the qualities it takes to be an effective and supportive registered nurse! Contact OVCT’s School of Nursing to find out how you can be ready for your nursing boards in months!

“The best decision I have EVER made. The first thing they told me here was, ‘we are a family’. Now at first I’m not saying I didn’t believe them, but I thought that’s just what schools usually say. BUT, what they said was no joke. We ARE a family, and I have met forever friends. The staff, and teachers all care so much about your future. I have learned more than I could have ever dreamed so far.”

– Natalie Gratteri, OVCT Graduate
