Miles Community College offers a five (5) semester Associate of Science in Nursing Degree which prepares the student for the Registered Nursing licensure exam. The optimal learning environment of MCC Nursing supports caring, recognizes differences, commits to excellence, demonstrates open communications, and encourages personal/professional growth and advocates for every person to function according to their own values, beliefs and practices.
The process of nursing education is based on professional interaction and mutual respect between the student and the teacher. Faculty members serve as role models and facilitators of learning. Faculty strives to provide clinical experience in various settings including but not limited to: simulation, hospitals, clinics, mental health, operating room, emergency, outpatient, intensive care units, labor and delivery, medical surgical units, public health, home health, and hospice. MCC nursing students complete a total of 255 clinical hours.
Nursing education is delivered on campus and through Interactive Television Network (ITV) to place bound students living in frontier areas. Glendive Medical Center and Sidney Health Center have partnered with Miles Community College and provide financial support for students to obtain an Associate of Science in Nursing Degree. Students using ITV and who are not from Glendive or Sidney are required to come to Miles City for clinical experiences.
Becoming a Registered Nurse and continuing to grow with more education opens the doors to possibilities that are only limited by the individual.

Miles Community College subscribes to the philosophy of a comprehensive community college, including an “open door” admissions policy designed to encourage all adults to continue their education.
The commitment to an open door admissions policy is defined as providing all eligible students with access to an appropriate educational offering at the College. Anyone over the age of 18 is admitted to the College if they have a high school diploma, GED, or satisfactory COMPASS scores; but the College reserves the right to guide students into the courses and programs that will enhance their opportunities for success.
Admission to the College does not necessarily imply eligibility to enroll in a course with established prerequisites (See Course Descriptions starting on page 84) or to enter a program that has a limited number of spaces and minimum entrance requirements. COMPASS and ACT/SAT test scores are used to help place students in appropriate level courses.
