Nursing Education


The Education Department at WJMC offers a wide range of continuing education opportunities to fit your needs, such as ACLS, PALS, NRP, TNCC, LPN IV Therapy certifications and more. The Education Department is committed to meeting the educational needs of nurses, nursing students, and others in the healthcare industry. Our classes are delivered by Nurses who have a combined experience of over 100 years.

We can offer day, evening and weekend experiences to meet the needs of nursing student clinical rotations. Although every nursing student will not seek job opportunities at WJMC we would like to take part in the education of students to enhance their knowledge and improve the nursing profession as a whole. We would love to have the opportunity to assist nursing instructors on topics such as mock patient codes. Please feel free to contact us to set up your mock code today.

When new graduates are hired at WJMC, the education department provides extensive training during orientation by offering a Nurse Residency Program and Orientation Skills Lab experience. Following orientation, the new hire is then matched with a preceptor on the unit. Competencies are demonstrated, and the preceptor continues 1:1 individualized training until the nurse feels confident in their clinical and time management skills to care for their assigned patients.
