Program Overview

The Department of Nurse Education provides students with opportunities for personal growth and attainment of academic goals leading to either a Vocational Nurse Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science in Registered Nursing, with the option of obtaining an Associate of Arts degree to facilitate their education for completion of a BSN degree at an upper level nurse education program.

The purpose of the multiple entry/exit program (MEEP) is to provide a curriculum that emphasizes deep learning, various opportunities and activities, facilitate students’ educational and career choices, and encourage life-long learning. Upon completion of the program students meet educational requirements for the specified National Council of Licensure Examination (NCLEX), Registered Nurse (RN), or Practical Nurse (PN).

Curriculum

Online Nursing Courses

Some courses in the Nursing curriculum are taught online. A course is classified as online when 85% to 100% of the course content is delivered using this approach. These courses will require the student to come to campus for course orientation and testing. It is important you are aware of this and prepare yourself to take classes using this delivery platform. Please take the Online Readiness Assessment.
