Hawkeye Community College

Hawkeye Community College’s Practical and Associates Degree Nursing programs are approved by the Iowa Board of Nursing and the Commission on Institutes of the North Central Association.  Our programs enroll 200 students annually.  Our students train in our on-site laboratory/clinical settings that are fully equipped to prepare them for patient care settings, as well as our multimillion dollar, state-of-the-art virtual hospital with its Pyxis station, IV simulators, and eight basic and advanced interactive patient simulators including adult, pediatric, neonatal, and maternal models.  Waterloo is located in the heart of the Cedar Valley, a vibrant area balancing urban convenience with small-town charm.  The area offers excellent cultural, recreational, dining, shopping entertainment, and educational opportunities.  It is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
