Putting theory into practice

If you care about others and want to put your empathy to work, you’ve come to the right place!  

Preparation for a career as a registered nurse requires both classroom instruction and clinical experience, and you’ll receive both in our program.

Your studies will include both theory and patient-centered practice as you acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to pass the National Council Licensing Examination after you’ve earned your associate degree.

And be assured that the credits earned in our program will transfer to four-year colleges and universities, so you’ll have no problem pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.
