Setting the Record Straight: You CAN Come to NMC Right After High School

Posted on Wed, Nov 08, 2017

The biggest misconception about Nebraska Methodist College is that students can't go here right after graduating from high school.

You’ve heard it. We’ve heard it. It’s out there.

But it's just not true.

While we do make it super easy for students to transfer in, we also know how to roll out the red carpet for first-time college students.

Choosing a Dorm: Why It Matters For College Selection

Posted on Tue, Aug 23, 2016

Your living situation can and will have an impact on your capacity to succeed while in college.

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.
