|PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: If you’ve been to a doctor’s office, hospital, or pretty much any health care setting in the North Country, you’ve probably seen NCCC graduates at work: Students from our widely respected nursing program are in demand across the region.
Our programs give you the opportunity to complete the requirements to become a registered professional nurse (RN) in two years – first completing the requirements to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in one year, with an option to complete the RN requirements in a second, two-semester course.This career-ladder design lets you build your career, and education, without repeating previous courses. Once you complete this second, two-semester course, you’ll be eligible to take the state’s licensing exam to become a registered nurse and be prepared to transfer to a four year school to complete your bachelor’s degree.
