LWTech admits a diverse group of students, representing men and women, all ethnicities, and both immigrant and native born individuals. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX). 92.2% of those admitted complete the program and more than 90% pass the NCLEX-RN licensing examination on their first attempt. In addition, it may prepare students interested in pursuing a degree at the baccalaureate level.

I like the adult-learning aspect. There were a lot of people my own age coming back to school and starting over! I’ve very much enjoyed from doing my biology science studies here all the way to my nursing prerequisites. All of the nursing instructors are great. They’ve been very encouraging. Between the hybrid class, the online classes, and regular in-class studies, it’s been a great fit all around. My overall experience has been amazing. I feel like I’m ready to go into the workplace and be a nurse!
