Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College (LCOOCC) has recently been reauthorized by the Wisconsin Nursing Board to offer the Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN). The ADN program is taught at the Lac Courte Oreilles/Hayward campus.
The LCOOCC Associate Degree of Nursing program will educate students in the art of caring and prepare them with evidence-based knowledge and clinical practicum to take the NCLEX-RN licensing examination upon graduation.
“This reauthorization approval of the Associate Degree in Nursing is a win for the Northwest Wisconsin region, our ability to train nurses who want to live and work locally makes our community more sustainable” states Lisa Munive, Dean of Academic Affairs at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College.
