Nurses are the heart of the healthcare profession and Harford nursing students learn through a curriculum that includes both theory presentation and supervised clinical laboratory experience at affiliating healthcare agencies.

The healthcare industry needs heroes like you. Nursing is challenging, interesting, and makes a huge difference in people's daily lives. Considered a multi-faceted career in healthcare, nurses play an integral role in providing patient care. In fact, nurses spend more time with patients than any other healthcare profession. Harford nursing students practice in the Clinical Simulation Lab using high-fidelity simulation, allowing them to experience real-world scenarios in a simulated environment, and master the basic competencies required to pursue a career as a registered nurse.

At Harford Community College, we offer a competitive nursing degree program that prepares you for a rewarding career in the healthcare field.
