Program Description

Nurses are on the frontlines of our healthcare system. As the population ages and the demand for more and better healthcare increases, the need for registered nurses is expected to soar. If you are looking to become a nurse and already hold a bachelor’s degree in a non-nurse subject, this program is designed for you.


Program Objectives

Classwork prepares you with knowledge needed to work in a care setting and clinical placements provide the valuable hands-on experience you need to become a highly qualified nurse. Completion of the eight semesters of part-time course work, including summers, prepares you to sit for the NCLEX exam to become licensed as a registered nurse.



You will take 6 to 8 credits a semester towards the program total of 60 credits. Rigorous coursework and clinical experience train you for a career in nursing. Prerequisites do not need to be completed at the time of application, but must be finished before starting the program.

Coursework includes:

  • Clinical Pharmacology
  • Pathophysiology
  • Complex Care Nursing
