Mammography Program Caps Off Year-Long Rad Tech Expansion

Posted on Wed, Oct 19, 2016

Your eyes don’t deceive you: there’s something different about the Nebraska Methodist College website.

For the rest of October 2016, the signature blue of the Methodist Health System and its affiliates has given way to the color pink on the NMC website.

This acts as a show of solidarity with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it’s far from the only thing happening on campus. We also just announced an online mammography program, which will give Radiologic Technology specialists the tools they’ll need to conduct diagnostic imaging of the human breast.

Stay in the Game with a Physical Therapist Assistant Degree

Posted on Mon, Sep 26, 2016

A physical therapist assistant degree is the perfect fit for student athletes.

Very few people will have the opportunity to play professional sports. For most, that means the world of athletics ends at the high school or collegiate level.

A PTA Associate’s degree, however, enables you to remain a part of that world for decades to come. You regularly interact with people of all shapes and sizes, even fellow athletes, to help them recover from whatever injuries they’ve sustained.

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.

But we’re not just teaching a trade. This is perhaps the biggest misunderstanding among some students when they visit our school. People believe that we focus only on the technical aspects of their future healthcare role, whether that be nursing, surgical technology, occupational therapy or any number of other disciplines offered at NMC.

What this fails to take into account is all those other things that create a successful healthcare practitioner. The technical portion of the job is only the beginning of a valuable education in the field of healing.

Surg Tech Undercover: Students Reveal Favorite Operations

Posted on Fri, Jul 01, 2016

To be a surgical technologist, you certainly can’t be squeamish. You’ll be on hand to assist the surgeon as he or she cuts into any and all parts of the human body.

For those who can stomach these procedures, participating in a life-saving surgery is one of the most rewarding experiences in the world. What might be gruesome to some signifies to others the immense level of hard work and determination required to make a huge difference in someone’s life.

To get a better idea of what it really means to be a surg tech, I gathered the opinions of students in the middle of the Surg Tech Associate’s Degree program here at Nebraska Methodist College. I wanted to know what the coolest procedures they ever took part in were as well as why those operations stood out to them more than any others.
