Nursing & Allied Health Division

Message From The Dean


The Nursing & Allied Health Division at NPC has incorporated our nursing, emergency medical services and allied health departments under a single banner to encourage you to explore the variety of career training opportunities available at NPC in both direct and support health care services.
The Northland Pioneer College Nursing program has served Navajo and Apache Counties since 1992. Our expert and caring faculty members utilize exciting, educational methods to present up-to-date nursing knowledge in ways students will understand and retain.
NPC also has an excellent Emergency Medical Services program where you can train to become a paramedic or EMT. Our faculty members are highly qualified emergency services field veterans who bring their knowledge and experience to the classroom. Their goal is your success.
Three career options are currently offered by our Allied Health Department: Pharmacy Technician studies, Phlebotomy studies and our Medical Assistant program. Enjoy job security as a trained and qualified support worker in the fast growing health care field.
Take the time to explore these pages and learn more about the wonderful opportunities available in the NPC Nursing and Allied Health division.

"When I came to NPC in 1987 to take my first classes, I was the stereotypical 'gardening mom,' who had been away from the classroom for some time. But I always had a love for learning and helping others. At NPC I found the support and encouragement I needed to reach my goal," commented second year nursing instructor Orina Hodgson.
