Mohave Community College
Mohave Community College was established in 1975 after a public vote and opened with three campuses. The original locations included Kingman, Bullhead City, and Lake Havasu City, with an additional campus in Colorado City. During the first semester, classes were taught at night. MCC began offering nursing classes in 1981 and became fully accredited the following year. Over the years, MCC has created additional programs, including business, computer information, engineering, education, and public safety. MCC has experience with distance learning, offering several courses via videotape in the late 1980’s. MCC continues to offer distance learning options through online classes and smartboard technology.
The nursing program was one of the first programs offered at Mohave Community College. The Nursing Associates in Applied Sciences is a two-year program, with the two years counting toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree from select universities. MCC also offers an AAS accelerated nursing track for Licensed Practical Nurses. This program allows LPNs to earn their AAS in two semesters. Students may also begin with the Practical Nursing Certificate Program. Students interested in practical nursing must have a minimum GPA of 2.85 and score 60% or higher on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).

The program takes approximately two years to complete. For enrollment into the program students must complete all of the prerequisite courses and take the Test of Essential Academic Skills or TEAS Test. The TEAS test can be taken three times within a calendar year. Candidates for the program are also required to have a complete background check as well as contact the Department of Public Safety to obtain a background clearance card. There is no wait list for the program but there are a limited amount of spaces available. Students should make sure that their application is fully completed before submitting it to avoid being passed over for a spot.
The Arizona State Board of Nursing approves the Mohave Community College nursing program. After the successful completion of this program students will be eligible to sit for the nursing licensure exam.
The program consists of four consecutive semesters. The four semesters will provide students with learning through labs, clinical work, lectures, and assignments. Some lectures may require a certain amount of travel.
