Unitek will offer health care programs at new campuses in Boise and Idaho Falls.
NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. DECEMBER 10, 2019
Unitek Learning is proud to announce the expansion of Eagle Gate College to 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 for the busy adult. Others will utilize state-of-the-art simulation centers with high-fidelity simulators and sim-view technology. The next generation can gain a well-rounded education at Unitek, effectively preparing them for successful health care careers.
“It has been another year of growth and opportunity for Unitek Learning, and we look forward to extending our reach in Idaho,” said David Higley, Chief Marketing Officer at Unitek Learning. “Through the Boise and Idaho Falls campuses, Unitek seeks to promote student excellence, strengthen support for workforce development, and help fill the need for health care professionals in the United States.”
Unitek Learning is the parent company of several distinguished learning institutions: Unitek College, Unitek EMT, Eagle Gate College, and Provo College. Unitek Learning is now expanding their presence to Idaho and Reno, Nevada. Taught by experienced professionals, Unitek programs teach clinical practices and theory used in the field today. Equipped with a multitude of sought-after skills, Unitek graduates are prepared to excel in many of the fastest-growing careers in health care and nursing.
