North-West College Offers Online Learning Solutions to Ensure Students Can Continue Classes During Coronavirus Outbreak
Transition Highlights College’s Commitment to Helping Students Achieve Their Educational Goals Safely
WEST COVINA, Calif.—In the wake of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, North-West College (NWC) is moving its programs online to allow students to begin and complete their classes from their safety of their own homes. This alternate delivery enables the College to institute social distancing, with the goal of further slowing the spread of the disease.
“Our first priority is the health and wellness of our Students and Team Members,” explained President Mitchell Fuerst. “Nothing is more important than the safety of our community. Moving our classes online allows us to continue to provide high quality education while playing our part in stemming the tide against COVID-19.”
Effective March 16, the transition online provides students the same dynamic learning environment the College is so well known for. Since many of North-West College’s programs include a blend of classroom instruction and hands-on clinicals, students will complete the didactic and theory portions of their classes first, with hands-on labs and clinical training to be scheduled later in their curriculum.
“I am confident we will make this a successful transition for new and current students alike,” shared Fuerst. “Our most important Core Value at North-West College is to Always Take Care of Our Students, and we know these online learning solutions will allow us to do exactly that.”
