The Health Education Center at New Hampshire Technical Institute received a major grant from Concord Orthopaedics in 2007. This new education center allows NHTI to increase enrollment and improve the quality of their nursing program responding to the shortage of nurses in New Hampshire. We recognize the need for quality nursing/health education in New Hampshire and are pleased to support NHTI in this endeavor. NHTI now offers an orthopaedic technology degree. Concord Orthopaedics is proud to partner with NHTI in offering student internships for students pursuing both a nursing and an orthopaedic career.
