The curriculum is divided among nursing theory, nursing clinical practice, general education and the sciences, where students participate in classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN for licensure. The Nursing program is designed to be completed in five (5) semesters on a full-time basis. The curriculum may be taken on a part time basis, but the nursing courses must be taken in sequence. This degree program consists of open enrollment courses (general education and division specific) and program specific courses with limited enrollment. The open enrollment courses may be taken prior to entry into the limited enrollment courses. Details on eligibility for the limited enrollment courses can be found online in the Nursing Student Handbook.
