The nursing program at SCC includes courses in science and liberal arts, as well as nursing. Nursing courses consist of lecture and laboratory periods and include carefully planned clinical experiences in local health care facilities. Clinicals begin early in the first semester and increase in length of time and complexity of skill as the program progresses. A well-equipped lab on campus allows students to practice their skills. Flexible scheduling allows students to choose between day and evening courses and clinical experiences.
The total program must yield a cumulative grade point average of 2.0, and all nursing and science courses must have earned a grade of "B" or above. Effective 2013.
