Full-Time and Part-Time Options
The Associate of Science in Nursing Degree may be completed in five semesters, full-time plan of study. However, students may choose a part-time option and complete the degree requirements over a longer period of time. The part-time option is accomplished by completing any or all of the required “non-nursing,” general education courses prior to applying for admission into the Nursing Program. Once admitted to the Nursing Program, students must complete the A.S.N. requirements within the five semesters. Students choosing the part-time option are initially designated Pre-Nursing students. Pre-Nursing students are assigned a nursing faculty advisor to develop a plan of study. The part-time option is highly recommended for students with job and/or family responsibilities.
