The College of Nursing prepares graduates for beginning level practice as Registered Nurses through an Associate in Applied Science Degree or a Licensed Practical Nurses through Certification. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses after successful program completion.
One of the strengths of the College of Nursing is its small size and diversity offering admission to 40 students in the first year of the Associate Degree program and 60 students in the 2nd year of the program with the LPN-RN transition option. This permits 40 students to be admitted to the day section and 20 students to the evening section.
Our Practical Nursing Program offers admission to 40 students in the day section and 20 students in the evening section.
The smaller class sizes offer more flexibility in maximizing opportunities for learning and interaction with faculty and other students. Teaching and learning is student centered. Students feel they belong to a group. Faculty have more time to provide detailed feedback so students get a better sense of their program progression. Nursing education is an ongoing process of encouraging growth in competence, critical thinking, and collaboration. Student/faculty communication provides opportunities for the student to access educational services that support professional development and enhance personal growth.
Carl Sandburg College relates to the health care needs of people of the area and the need for nursing education.
I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about our programs and continuing nursing education options.
We welcome your feedback.
