Clark College

Vancouver WA 98663

Associate Degree in Nursing
In 1962, Clark College's nursing program graduated its first class of nurses. But in truth, the college's history of nursing education stretches long before then, back to when it taught Nurse's Aide courses to help fill the nursing shortage during World War II. At the time, nurses were typically trained in hospital-sponsored and - hosted schools, but when St. Joseph's Hospital shut down its nursing school in the mid-1950s, leaving the region with no source of new nurses, Clark College stepped in to fill the gap. It's been providing quality nursing care - and high-paying jobs - to the region ever since.
