The 2018-2019 school year is off to an exciting start. Student laughter fills our halls and faculty innovation fills our classrooms. What a unique learning environment. Will you join us?
In the past several months, MCHP has made incredibly strides in realizing its mission of enriching lives by offering outstanding education in healthcare professions. We are thrilled by our accomplishments and plan to continue to offer a world-class education in healthcare right here in Lewiston, Maine.
In addition to our excellent Nursing (RN), Radiologic Technology, RN to BSN, Associate in Health Science, Sonography, and Mammography programs, we have other great programs in the works. In 2017, we were authorized by the State of Maine Board of Education to offer bachelor's degrees, thereby opening the door for us to submit requests to our academic accreditor, NECHE to offer degrees at this level. We very much look forward to expanding our bachelor’s degree offerings in the near future. In addition to looking toward offering more bachelor’s degrees, we continue to provide education that serves the healthcare needs of our region. On August 15, we submitted an application to NECHE to gain approval to offer a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certificate, and we will hear about the final decision by mid-fall. If NECHE approves our application, we will be rolling out an LPN program in January 2019!
Our goal at MCHP is to set you up for a successful career in healthcare. We do this through offering extensive hands-on clinical hours, providing one-on-one instruction and support from our all-star faculty, giving you unmatched levels of attention in your learning journey, and expecting the highest outcomes that lead to phenomenal success. By doing these things, our graduates have experienced a college-wide 82% first time pass rate on licensure exams and 100% of 2017 and 2018 graduates are employed or pursuing continuing education 6 months post graduating.
Come learn more about how MCHP can help you achieve a successful career in healthcare!
