WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Pitt Community College is locally known for having a standout associate degree nursing program. The program is also known for being especially hands-on with its students using the program’s Simulation Hospital.

Located on the campus, the Simulation Hospital uses artificial dummies with symptoms that the students have to figure out how to treat. It is used to prepare the students to work at hospitals in the real world.
