Nursing and Allied Health Department

If you are interested in pursuing a career in nursing or allied health, Motlow State is the place for you. We are working to add more Allied Health options soon.

Motlow's nursing program is known across the state for its excellent graduates. Starting in the fall of 2017, the nursing program will implement a new curriculum for the traditional RN program. Be sure to look at the information provided under the Two Year Track to RN link. LPN students who want to become an RN, after completing prerequisite courses, can graduate in three semesters. Be sure to look at the One Year Track LPN to RN Transition link. If you have the desire and motivation to become a nursing professional, this program is for you.

Motlow's EMS program is respected for its innovative and real-life training. The EMS program provides certifications in EMT, AEMT and EMT- Paramedic and an AAS degree for Paramedics. This exciting, growing program is on the move to get its graduates into jobs in emergency departments, fire departments, flight programs, and local EMS services.

Motlow State's third allied health program is Medical Laboratory Technology. The program offers an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Medical Laboratory Technology. It is designed to prepare students to enter the work force as generalist Medical Laboratory Technicians (MLT). Students learn the theories, principles, and disease correlations behind clinical laboratory testing. Motlow State encourages you to further explore this dynamic profession and our MLT program.
