The Allied Health Program of Northwest Technical Institute, in partnership with the NWA community, is committed to providing education to serve the needs of students wishing to enter a recognized health care profession and to provide quality health care for the community.
The Surgical Technology program is designed to prepare students to become skilled operating room technicians. The program prepares students to function under the supervision of a physician or registered nurse. Sterile technique, operative procedures, anatomy and microbiology as applied to surgery are studied. Upon completion of this program, the student will be prepared to accept employment as a surgical technologist.
The Practical Nurse program was originally established to meet a critical need for trained nursing care in the immediate area of Northwest Arkansas. Training at this institute therefore provides local employers with a potential workforce of men and women who will practice in this area. Since graduates of this program will venture into other areas of the state and nation, it is of utmost importance that this educational institution strives to provide the highest standard of education to their graduates.
