School of Nursing

The Nursing Program educates individuals to become registered nurses at the associate degree level. It is designed to provide the foundation for further preparation in nursing and life-long learning. The program prepares a nurse generalist for beginning professional practice using knowledge derived from the liberal arts, biological sciences, physical sciences, behavioral sciences, and nursing. Individuals will be prepared to practice in a variety of health care settings, and encouraged to continue personal and professional growth. The program emphasizes excellent teaching with a commitment to student-faculty interaction. Individual talents, background experiences, perspectives, and insights are recognized and appreciated by faculty. Graduates will be eligible to apply to write the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN).

The School of Nursing recognizes the education and experience of Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses with an articulation model.
