WVJC Offers Online Nursing Program
West Virginia Junior College is now offering a hybrid, online Nursing program to students in the Beckley and Huntington areas. Beckley area students would be a part of the WVJC School of Nursing at Raleigh General. This platform is ideal for individuals who prefer to complete their nursing education online. Additionally, students have the convenience of our WVJC Charleston location being the home campus delivering the nursing classes. If you have dreamed of becoming a nurse, this could be the program for you!
The program is structured, so students take the didactic components of their nursing classes online. At the same time, they complete their lab and clinical instruction at local hospitals, Raleigh General Hospital for Beckley students, and other medical facilities in the Huntington area.
Students who complete this nursing training program will be conferred an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN)*.
Nurses deserve admiration and respect from the communities they serve. They provide patients and their families with healthcare and clinical expertise while offering them emotional comfort and community resource guidance.
*Passing the NCLEX-RN exam is required to become a Registered Nurse.

Direct Admission Nursing Program
The WVJC School of Nursing at Raleigh General and WVJC School of Nursing in Huntington programs are direct admission programs. This means, once accepted, you’ve been assured a seat in the nursing training program and will not need to complete years of pre-nursing general classes.
WVJC’s direct admission Nursing program precludes students from enduring the wait and stress of taking unnecessary and unrelated classes while waiting to be accepted into the nursing program.
The WVJC School of Nursing at Raleigh General and the WVJC School of Nursing program for those in the Huntington area employs an Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) adaptive learning system. This helps nursing students absorb the material in the most effective way for each student.
The ATI adaptive learning system can help students achieve better test scores, thus improving their chances of becoming nurses.
Your Career In Nursing
Nursing careers provide compassionate individuals with the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. Nurses comfort patients and their families during some of their most challenging times. They are also there to support and celebrate with patients through treatment and recovery.
Nursing also offers many pathways for career satisfaction, medical specializations, and career growth. Not only is nursing a stable and respected field of study, but nurses can also choose from travel nurse, pediatric nurse, education, or numerous other areas of concentration.
Be a Part of Something Special
Nursing is a rewarding but challenging career. It can be very demanding caring for the well-being of patients. Therefore successful nursing candidates should possess problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Your WVJC nursing admissions team will guide you through all the necessary steps to be completed before beginning your nursing courses.
Step one is to set up an initial information gathering session that details the pieces of a complete application package. Next, you complete an individual campus or virtual visit where you discuss your goals in nursing and an enrollment timeframe that works for you.
Your admissions team member is your champion and partner, and supports you through the admissions testing, acceptance documents, and arranges meetings with financial aid and nursing faculty.
WVJC School of Nursing at Raleigh General and the WVJC School of Nursing program in Huntington will accept a limited number of nursing students each year. This is a competitive program. Interested candidates should request information immediately to take advantage of this exciting opportunity.
RN to BSN through WVJC Online
WVJC Online is excited to offer a 12-month online RN to BSN program through the WVJC School of Nursing, allowing students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Upon passing the NCLEX-RN exam, RNs can begin their nursing careers while simultaneously earning their BSN. This program is designed for registered nurses (RNs) with an associate degree in nursing (ADN) who want to advance their careers.
WVJC ADN graduates auto-qualify for the BSN Pathway Scholarship* upon being accepted into the program. Students who graduate from WVJC with their ADN and immediately continue to the RN to BSN program could have their BSN in less than three years! This can give students a head start in their careers, save time and money, and allow them to advance their education.
*For those who qualify. See catalog for detailed eligibility requirements.
