Choosing a Dorm: Why It Matters For College Selection

Posted on Tue, Aug 23, 2016

It’s shocking to think that most students approach choosing a dorm as an afterthought. When you add it all up, you’re actually going to spend far more time in your residence hall than you are any other place on campus.

Your living situation can and will have an impact on your capacity to succeed while in college. Persons who are forced to reside in substandard conditions that aren’t conducive to good study habits may find themselves struggling to keep up with assignments and maintain exceptional grades. Or, they simply won’t have as much fun (or they’ll have too much fun).

Why More Nurses Are Earning a DNP Than Ever Before

Posted on Wed, Aug 03, 2016

There was a time when, to most people, the word “doctor” was interchangeable with “physician.” If you made a doctor’s appointment, it meant you were going in to see a physician.

That’s not always the case now. Today, a visit to the doctor could just as accurately be described as a visit to the nurse. Nurses are earning a DNP in record numbers, and with those doctorates comes an expanded role in patient care.

Why It’s Not Just Healthcare Classes At NMC

Posted on Fri, Jul 29, 2016

Nebraska Methodist College is renowned around the metro area for its nursing and allied health curriculum. For 30 years, we’ve enabled persons in assorted healthcare fields to offer the best care possible, and for 95 years before that, we educated nurses to excel in the very same way.
