Success Stories
What's Your Story?
WTC Ranked #39 Among All Accredited Nursing Schools in State; Top Among State's Technical Centers
Withlacoochee Technical College (WTC) is proud to announce it is ranked #39 statewide among all accredited nursing schools in Florida, and is the top-ranked technical center in the state.  The ranking was determined by Nursing Schools Almanac, an online resource that compiles information about accredited nursing programs.  Nursing Schools Almanac provides information online to aspiring nurses so they can make informed decisions about their education.
For the 2018 rankings, the research team collected data from all accredited nursing schools in Florida and evaluated them in three areas:
  • The institution's academic prestige and perceived value
  • The breadth and depth of nursing programs offered
  • Student success, particularly on the NCLEX national licensure exam
The data was combined into an overall score and the schools ranked accordingly.  More information about the assessment methodology can be found here: https://www.nursingschoolsalmanac.com/rankings/methodology
Included in the rankings are well-known, large nursing schools such as University of Florida, University of Central Florida, and Florida State University.  Nursing Schools Almanac had this to say about WTC:
(T)hese students have a phenomenal track record on the NCLEX-PN licensure exam. Since 2010, they have passed the exam at a 98% rate overall, including a string of recent classes with a perfect 100% pass rate.
WTC is extremely proud of the accomplishments of our nursing students and their dedicated instructors, past and present.  WTC offers students value for their tuition dollars and can help you prepare for a high-wage, high-demand career in the field of nursing.
