The School of Nursing and Health Sciences

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences offers two degrees in the healthcare field - the Associate of Science in Nursing and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The Associate of Science in Nursing is offered in two tracks. Both lead to eligibility to take the licensing examination to be a Registered Nurse (RN). The first track is a traditional or Generic track, which can be completed in as few as two semesters of pre-requisites and four semesters of nursing courses for a total of six semesters. The second track is the One-Year Registered Nurse track, commonly known as the Bridge track, in which licensed practical nurses, registered paramedics and registered respiratory therapists may qualify for advanced placement after they complete all of the core courses. The nursing courses are completed in three semesters (one calendar year). The RN to BSN Completion Program offers RNs who have associate degrees the opportunity to complete a bachelor degree in nursing.
