Nursing Programs Offered
Central Arizona College offers an associate’s degree-nursing program that teaches students how to provide support not only in the clinical setting, but also in the administrative or clerical setting. Students have access to such learning recourses as virtual classrooms and state of the art simulators. The program also offers smaller class sizes for a more personal learning experience.
To enter the program students must receive satisfactory scores on the HESI nursing entrance exam as well as complete the required prerequisite courses. This nursing program is broken up into 4 blocks of courses. Students are offered the choice to complete the program with a practical nursing license after completing two blocks or continuing on in the program, completing all four blocks, to earning their associates degree and becoming a registered nurse.
Enrollment for this program begins in the fall and spring semesters. The program is selective and only a limited amount of students will be accepted during each enrollment period. Candidates should become familiar with the student handbook and admission information should they have questions about enrollment. They are also encouraged to attend a nursing information session at the school.
