Welcome to Nursing Department

Lurelean B. Gaines, Chairperson

Nursing provides unlimited opportunities for creativity, innovation and leadership while demanding integrity, commitment and compassion. The role of a nurse is varied. You may practice as a caregiver, educator or researcher. The work is diverse, complex, demanding, challenging, and above all, very gratifying.


Important Update:

Open Enrollment 2017

We will be giving applications from May 1st until May 26th 2017 Monday through Friday Closer to May 1st the application hours will be posted.

If you are currently enrolled in a required prerequisite and it will be completed this June 2017, you can still apply.

We are currently not accepting transfer students due to limited space. Transfer students are considered students who have been in another nursing program.
