The Nursing Program offers a course of study that prepares students for licensure as Registered Nurses.
The curriculum includes a strong foundation in communication, biological and social sciences, general education, and nursing courses. Students integrate theory and practice throughout the Nursing Program. Application occurs in campus laboratories, simulation laboratories, classroom settings, acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, and community health care settings.
All science courses must be completed before the application deadline date with a cumulative GPA of 2.85 or above. Non-science classes must be completed with at least a 2.0 (C) grade before starting the Nursing Program.

Proposed Plan of Study
Note to Students: The program of study prepares a graduate to enter a BSN course of study immediately after completing the Associate Degree, giving the graduate the highest opportunity for employment as an RN soon after graduation. It is required that all students meet with a nursing advisor to determine a plan of study that will lead to their success. Be aware that some of the required courses above may have prerequisites.
