Our program prepares the beginning nursing student to be a nurse-generalist. Upon graduation, you will be eligible to apply for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. This plan is a full-time day program. We encourage you to complete some, if not all, of the general education courses, prior to being admitted to the program, as this will lighten the your load and allow you to focus on your nursing courses.
