Nicolet College - Health Occupations Open House Oct. 21


Explore Health Occupation Careers
at Oct. 21 Open House

 

Anyone interested in exploring a career in high-demand health occupations is invited to an open house at Nicolet College from noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 21.

The event, in Art-Tech Center Room 2008, will give interested individuals the chance to learn about the many different health-related degrees and diplomas available at Nicolet. They'll also get the chance to meet with Nicolet instructors and tour the new health occupations labs and classrooms.

"Right now there's strong demand for health care professionals and that's not expected to diminish anytime soon," said Lenore Mangles, dean of health occupations at Nicolet College. "If anything, demand is only going to increase in this area due largely to Baby Boomers retiring from the profession and the increased level of health services necessary to care for an aging population."

Nicolet currently offers seven health occupations programs that take anywhere from a couple of months to two years or more to complete. These programs include associate degree nurse, practical nurse, surgical technologist, diagnostic medical sonography, radiography, medical assistant, and nursing assistant.

Many of these programs offer flexible class schedules that include late afternoon and evening instruction along with online classes.

The open house will also include different demonstrations, free blood pressure screening, refreshments and raffle prizes. Everyone attending will also receive a free coupon that waives Nicolet's $30 application fee.

For more information, contact Natalie Clark at (715) 365-4912, nclark@nicoletcollege.edu, or Lenore Mangles at (715) 365-4637, lmangles@nicoletcollege.edu. Both can also be reached toll free at 1-800-544-3039, using the last four digits of the phone numbers above to contact their specific offices.

Nicolet's Rhinelander campus is located one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G. The Art-Tech Center is the first building on the left as you enter campus.
