Cinnamon Bell-Williams, MSN, RN, CRRN

Associate Dean of Nursing Programs
The 2016 nursing application cycle is open for submissions from October 26, 2015 thru May 29, 2016. Students who begin the nursing program in Fall 2016 will enroll at Malcolm X College.

The curriculum is designed to prepare the student for employment as a Registered Nurse in a variety of settings such as: hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, physician offices, schools, public health, government, the military, and industry.

Students who want to pursue a nursing career should have a sincere desire to work with people and be empathetic to their needs. Becoming a nursing professional is rigorous, but most nurses derive considerable satisfaction from knowing that their work contributes directly to the well-being of others.​​​
