Although the program is designed to be completed in two semesters and a summer, it is highly recommended that students complete most, if not all non-nursing courses prior to the start of the first Nursing course.  If not, all non-nursing, general education courses, must be completed prior to or concurrently with the nursing courses with which they are listed in the curriculum pattern.  Failure to complete these general education courses will result in a student being ineligible for graduation and ineligible

to take the NCLEX exam for licensure.

All nursing and non-nursing courses must be completed with a "C" or better.  Successful completion of Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program is required for admission into Nursing Program.  SFC 1000 and ALH 1001 are recommended.

Most nursing courses (NUR) are 8 weeks in length, 4 days a week.  There is no evening or part-time program.
