Our Students Pass the Test
Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is one of the best places to earn a degree in Nursing. Each of our professional Nursing programs are approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing.
Our graduates are successful in passing Minnesota Board of Nursing Licensing Exams and in receiving quality employment placements. Our 2018 RN graduating class achieved a high rate of passing the board exam with more than an 83% pass rate on the exam.
Our graduates accept employment offers at large regional hospitals, specialty clinics, community hospitals, tribal health clinics, county public health departments, long-term care facilities, family practice clinics, and just about anywhere skilled nurses are needed. The job market outlook for our nursing students is excellent and will remain stable over many years as the population ages and requires additional health care services.
We offer a range of options and program length, including a two-year Associate Degree in Nursing that prepares students to become Registered Nurses. Another option is the one-year Practical Nursing Diploma program that prepares students to become Licensed Practical Nurses. We also offer the short-term Registered Nursing Assistant certificate program for quick access to employment in the field of Nursing.
