Nebraska Methodist College of Nursing Description:

The Nebraska Methodist College of Nursing and Allied Health was founded in 1891. Located in Omaha, the school began to train nurses--a tradition it carries on to this day. Affiliated with the Methodist Church, the school offers a range of programs and degrees (from Associate's to Master's) in healthcare and related fields. Popular areas of study include nursing, radiology, health services administration, and physical therapy. Academics are supported by an impressive 12 to 1 student / faculty ratio. NMC also offers courses online; students take one course at a time, and any lab requirements may be met at local or nearby facility. Outside of the classroom, students can participate in a number of on-campus clubs and organizations, ranging from honor societies (Sigma Theta Tau, Lambda Nu); religious clubs (Ignite, outreach/mission projects); and academic/professional groups (Methodist Student Nurses' Association, Radiography/Physical Therapy Chapters). With only around 1,000 students, NMC offers its students the chance to experience a close-knit, individualized course of study, while being able to experience city life--Omaha has a population of around 40,000, and there is a lot of art and culture for students to explore!
