Nash Community College has announced the naming of the future lobby in the Veterinary Medical Technology facility by the Boddie-Noell Foundation. Organization leaders said they are proud to support NCC’s efforts to bring this program to eastern North Carolina. Renovations have begun in NCC’s Building D classroom and lab spaces.
NCC’s Veterinary Medical Technology program is one of only six VMT programs offered in North Carolina and the only one located in this region of the state. Potential employers were surveyed, and results indicated skilled veterinary technicians are in demand both in Nash County and regionally. This confirms national trends showing increased employment opportunities in veterinary medicine. Employers indicated they would hire graduates immediately if they were available.
Students interested in the Veterinary Medical Technology degree program began taking prerequisite courses and general education requirements last fall, and the college’s first VMT cohort will begin taking classes this fall. Visit www.nashcc.edu/VMT for more information about the program, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
