Miami Nursing Jobs Trainees Have New Option

Those studying for Miami nursing jobs and other health professions now have a new option in the area. Visit http://miamidade.jobing.com/jobs/nursing to learn more.
Dade Medical College recently opened a new campus in Hollywood, the school’s first campus in Broward County. About 20 students began attending the school in February, but DMC hopes to enroll some 500 students by the end of the year.
According to an article by The Miami Herald, the new campus has 10 classrooms and four labs in a 16,000-square-foot space. This is DMC’s fourth location, in addition to campuses in downtown Miami, Hialeah and Homestead.
Although several colleges and technical schools in the area already offer programs in various medical fields, many have long waiting lists, making the new campus a near-necessity.
The Hollywood campus is currently offering six programs. Students can earn a diploma or associate degree in diagnostic cardiac sonography, diagnostic medical ultrasound, medical assistant or massage therapy, or an associate degree in general radiologic technology or healthcare management.
DMC also plans to apply for licensing that would allow the new campus to offer a practical nursing diploma program and an associate degree in nursing, both of which would prepare students to take the exam to become a registered nurse.
The college’s three other locations already offer that nursing program. Students should be able to complete a diploma program within a year and an associate program within one to two-and-a-half years.
