Plan of Study

The curriculum for earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing has two levels.

In the lower division, students take a core of general education classes, including English, history and math, and basic science and nursing courses that focus on health and wellness, communication, the history of nursing, nutrition and pharmacology.

All lower division courses must be completed before students can apply to the upper division. Acceptance into the lower division program does not guarantee a student will progress to the next level. The process is competitive and based on cumulative GPA.

Upper division students combine clinical hours in a variety of settings with classroom instruction and work in the college's patient simulation lab. Students must attend school full-time and take the classes in the sequence offered.
