College of Distinction logoThe nursing curriculum for the combined Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science degree option is designed to be a two-plus-two program. This option allows students to progress seamlessly through both programs and all students in the Associate of Science in Nursing program are considered to be in the 2+2 Associate of Science/Bachelor of Science program as the intent is that students will continue on to complete the BSN degree.

The Associate of Science Degree in Nursing is earned within the first two years or five semesters and is designed to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the field of nursing, pass their licensure examination and obtain employment as a valued Registered Nurse. Progress to the Bachelor of Science Degree is sequenced according to individual needs and preferred scheduling options.
