Successful completion of the Practical Nursing course of study leads to a Certificate of Achievement, and eligibility to make application to take the examination for licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse.
Completion of the Practical Nursing course of study does not assure admission into the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Students must apply for entry into this program and compete with all other applicants of that year. Since the Practical Nursing Program and the Associate Degree Nursing Program are separate programs, all individuals, including graduates of the Practical Nursing program at NCCC, must make formal application for consideration for entry into the Associate Degree Nursing Program. For more information on admission into Allied Health Programs at NCCC click here.
Successful completion of the Associate Degree Nursing course of study leads to an Associate in Applied Science degree and eligibility to make application to take the New York State Board Nursing examination for licensure as a registered professional nurse.
The certificate in Practical Nursing and Associate Degree Nursing programs are approved and registered by the New York State Board of Nursing in accordance with the rules and regulations of the New York State Education Department.
