Hannah Seltzer,

Northampton Community College’s (NCC) associate degree in nursing program earned a number one ranking out of 26 evaluated schools with nursing programs in Pennsylvania, according to Out of the 26 Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing Approved RN (ADN) Programs for 2020, 10 schools were ranked among the best. NCC came out on top due to its affordable education that prepares well-versed, technically competent nurses. The program consists of four semesters and clinical learning experiences in conjunction with different healthcare agencies in the Lehigh Valley and its surrounding areas.

NCC’s nursing program students have the freedom of choosing classes and clinicals both during the day and at night to fit their schedule. Studying in NCC's facilities and small classes helps students gain the necessary skills and allows them to interact directly with their instructors.
