The cooperative relationship between MPC and CHOMP offers unparalleled opportunities for students to learn in real-world settings, interface directly with physicians and patients, develop close relationships with their colleagues, and hone their skills through hands-on experiences.

The didactic portion of the program includes in-service educational opportunities at the hospital along with outstanding resources (like a state-of-the-art simulation lab on the MPC campus) providing a distinctive and rich educational experience.  In fact, nearly 95% of the graduating student body passed their licensing exam on their first try in 2012.

We are proud of the 29-year relationship with MPC and note with great pride that close to 800 nurses having graduated from the program. We invite the community to join us in support of this important program.
