Programs

We offer two Nursing Programs: The Vocational Nursing Program and the Registered Nursing Program, which includes an LVN to RN option.

 

The programs offer an integrated curriculum, which prepares the graduates for the challenges in today’s nursing.

 

Graduates completing the Registered Nursing Program will receive an Associate In Science Degree in Nursing and qualify to take the State Board Examination (NCLEX-RN)* for Licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

 

The RN Program requires two academic years beyond completion of the prerequisite courses.

 

The LVN to RN Program requires successful completion of prerequisites and the third and fourth semesters of the RN Program.

 

Graduates completing the Vocational Nursing Program will receive a Certificate and qualify to take the State Board Examination (NCLEX-PN)** for licensure as a vocational nurse (LVN). The Vocational Nursing Program requires three semesters.
