This field is expected to grow up to 12% in the next five years, making jobs in nursing both high-demand and readily available to individuals looking to join or advance in this rewarding industry. Moore Norman Technology Center is dedicated to training the next workforce generation of nurses and continuing to provide continued classes for existing RNS to grow in knowledge, technical skills, and experience.
High school students considering a career in nursing or healthcare, can start training junior year. MNTC offers multiple career programs that utilize a realistic clinical setting for training students in basic nursing care. Students have the opportunity to participate in clinical rotations at local medical facilities and offices, and upon completion, sit for industry certifications leading to employment. High school students enrolled in the Moore and Norman public school districts can start applying in November for classes that start in August of the following year.
Adults making a career shift into the health field can complete their training between 10 – 16 months. MNTC full-time adult-only classes focus on developing more advanced skillsets, preparing nurses to have practice in a clinical setting, hospitals, home health, and assisted living facilities for a direct patient care experience. Applications for adult-only health programs typically open in January and close in April.
MNTC advanced training for nurses doesn’t stop after they join the work force. We believe in the power of technical skills development at every stage. Existing nurses can take a variety of continuing education classes to renew certification like CPR BLS for HealthCare Providers, DDMAT Update, Opioid for Healthcare Providers, and 30+ other options to improve their skills and enhance their career. Short-term classes are offered both online and in-person to meet the needs of individuals with full-time demanding careers.
For organizations looking to invest in their employees, MNTC’s Workforce and Economic Development team is prepared to help nursing professionals keep up with rapidly changing health and medical advances. MNTC Workforce and Economic Development training covers everything from certification maintenance to staff education on emerging technologies within this field. Group training can be conducted on site at your facility, or in one of our many state of the art health labs.
