Close supervision, instruction, and compassion continue as students put everything they have learned from the classroom and skills gaining confidence through hands-on experience. After clinicals are successfully completed, the students graduate with exemplary preparation for the State of Michigan certification exam through Prometric. Skills review before the State test and employment assistance is offered indefinitely to all our NMHTS graduates. Your relationship with NMHTS doesn't end at graduation!
