Degrees and Certificates

The Nursing Program has one degree and one certificate program. Our Practical Nursing certificate (available as both a part-time and full-time program) enables recipients to become licensed practical nurses by taking the National Council of Nursing Examinations (NCLEX)-PN. Graduates of our full-time LPN-ADN Bridge program receive an Associate of Applied Science and are eligible to become Registered Nurses by taking the NCLEX-RN exam.

Many of our courses are guaranteed to transfer credit to another college or university to pursue higher levels of nursing education.
