Nursing is one of the most diverse and exciting careers in today’s health
care field. It provides unlimited opportunities and intangible benefits for
those who enter the profession. Nursing is a career for those interested
in a challenge, as well as those who seek the reward of caring for others.
Big Bend Community College’s Nursing Program combines classroom
work with skills laboratory and clinical experiences to provide students
with a solid foundation of knowledge and experience. Nurses are
educated to function in a variety of clinical situations that meet the
diverse needs of individuals, their families, and communities.

goal of the school is to prepare students to become safe and
responsible beginning practitioners.
