Hazard Community and Technical College’s Nursing Program has been ranked as the 4th best nursing program in Kentucky by RNCCareers.org.


“We are honored to receive this recognition. The ranking validates the excellent work of the faculty and students of our nursing program,” said Dr. Jennifer Lindon, HCTC President/CEO.

RNC rigorously evaluated 1,892 RN programs on a number of factors important to nursing students including first-time NCLEX passing rates, accreditation, program offerings and more.

Nursing Coordinator Christy Martin noted, “The nursing faculty play the key role in the high ranking given to the HCTC Nursing Program. The nursing faculty at HCTC work closely together to assure quality learning and clinical opportunities for our students. HCTC Nursing faculty are very student oriented and work with students throughout the entire program, not just for one course. The faculty utilize various technology and teaching strategies to provide all types of learners the best learning experience. We have grown over the past few years and admit students twice a year, on multiple campuses with day and evening classes offered. Our graduates have 100% job placement.”

HCTC has expanded its nursing program to accept 100 students per cohort with two cohorts starting each year. The college has improved facilities, created new labs, and obtained a specialized lab for learning.

“Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system and preparing great nurses is something we'd like to acknowledge Hazard Community and Technical College for doing so well,” noted Laura Jacobson of RNCareers.org
