Gainful Employment Disclosure

The Department of Education passed an initiative designed to protect students from taking on unsustainable debt in order to pay for their education. The data is provided for students of WSCC so students can make an informed choice about a program and the potential for gainful employment of that program. For WSCC, these are programs that are less than an associate’s degree. Click here to view the Nurse Assistant Gainful Employment information.

Prior to clinical experience in the Nurse Assistant course, a criminal background investigation will be required of students. Any negative factors in students’ backgrounds may limit placement in one or more agencies. Attempts will be made to adjust for this limitation, but if accommodations cannot be made, continuation in the Nurse Assistant course will not be allowed.
