Unitek Learning is expanding to Eagle Gate College campuses in Boise and Idaho Falls. Eagle Gate plans to offer medical assisting and nursing programs at both locations. The Idaho Board of Nursing recently gave Unitek initial approval to create nursing education programs for these new campuses. Based in California, Unitek seeks to provide Idaho residents with accelerated and convenient courses for their health care needs. The two campuses will open in 2020, and they will offer aspiring professionals a range of programs in the nursing field.
“During the Idaho Board of Nursing meeting that was held on October 10th in Boise, Idaho, all board members unanimously voted to grant Unitek initial approval to plan a new nursing education program application for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, a Master’s Entry Program in Nursing, and a Practical Nursing program,” said Dr. Abdel Yosef, Chief Academic Officer at Unitek Learning. “The addition of these nursing programs will help alleviate nursing shortages in the state of Idaho.”
While the Idaho Board of Nursing has approved the development of these programs, they have not yet been approved by the school’s accrediting agency or the Idaho State Board of Education. Once finalized, students can benefit from a dynamic learning environment. This includes applied training, hands-on exercises, and clinical simulations. In addition, most students will benefit from class caps to maximize their learning experience. Some programs will also feature online coursework. Others will utilize state-of-the-art simulation centers with high-fidelity simulators and sim-view technology.
Unitek Learning is the parent company of several learning institutions: Unitek College, Unitek EMT, Eagle Gate College, and Provo College. Unitek Learning is now expanding their presence to Idaho and Reno, Nevada.
