Quote from the President
"Northeast Community College is dynamic and at the cutting edge of many initiatives. The McIntosh College of Nursing houses Northeast and the University of Nebraska Medical Center nursing programs from basic nurse aide through master's degree. In addition, the College Center in South Sioux City has been designed to combine courses and programs from Northeast and Wayne State colleges which lead to certificates and diplomas in addition to associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees. Northeast attended a Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony at the United States Department of Agriculture headquarters. The memorandum encourages increased cooperation between USDA Rural Development and rural community colleges to develop partnerships and work together to strengthen rural economies."
