Program of study effective FALL 2018

For students admitted to the nursing program with no applicable general education (non-nursing) college credit(s)
classes for 4 semester program

This program of study demonstrates the ability to complete the AAS Nursing degree in four (4) semesters.

*Grades in designated courses are used in the admission scoring process. Success in these courses can increase an applicant’s admission score and competitiveness. 

Nursing school is challenging and requires attention to time-management and self-discipline. Many students enter the nursing program with credit for some or all of the non-nursing course work. Faculty advisors assist students with prior credit in developing an individual academic plan to completion. Regardless of prior credit, in-program students must take all courses during or prior to the semester listed in the paradigm. Depending upon the number of courses completed in advance, most students are able to maintain full-time status (minimum 12 credit hours) throughout the program.
