4 Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing PROGRAM INFORMATION General Description The Associate Degree Nursing Program at Cuyahoga Community College provides the opportunity for students to become registered nurses. Although the course of study is designed to be completed in five semesters (2½ years), most students, due to time constraints, complete the requirements in 3 to 4 years. The aim of the Nursing Program is to provide a broad education. Approximately half of the total credit hours are nursing courses, with the remaining course work evenly divided among science courses such as Anatomy and Physiology and general studies courses such as English. Students attend classes at Tri-C s Metropolitan, Eastern, or Westshore campuses and care for patients at clinical agencies throughout the Northeast Ohio. The nursing courses consist of classroom study; practice in the college nursing skills laboratory using manikins and simulation equipment; and in various healthcare settings caring for patients. Each week, depending upon the clinical nursing course, students will devote approximately 4-5 hours in the classroom, hours in the clinical setting and a minimum of 2-4 hours in the college nursing skills practice laboratory. Laboratory time is a combination of scheduled practice, testing sessions; and, open lab time. It is an expectation that students spend approximately two hours per week viewing videos, utilizing software; and, practicing and mastering skills. There are 3 avenues for entry into the Associate Degree Nursing Program. Applicants may enroll as follows: 1. Applicants with a High School Diploma, GED, or higher may apply for acceptance into the Generic Track. 2. Applicants with a Bachelor s Degree (or higher) may apply for acceptance into the Accelerated Track. 3. Applicants licensed as a Practical Nurse may apply for acceptance into the LPN to RN Track ACCESS in Nursing (Achieving Continuing Career Education for Success and Satisfaction). Generic Track Day and Modified Evening students are admitted to the Program in the Fall and Spring Semesters. LPN to RN Track Modified Evening students are admitted ONLY in the Spring Semester. Accelerated Track Day students are admitted to the Program ONLY in the Fall Semester. The following description of the admission requirements explains how each type of applicant should complete the process. Admission Requirements The admission requirements for the Associate Degree Nursing Program consist of four parts: General Admission Requirements and Associate Degree Nursing Program requirements, Background Check, and Health Care/CPR Requirements. Part I: General College Admission Requirements The applicant must meet the requirements for general admission to the College as listed in the Catalog under the heading: ADMISSIONS, REGISTRATION AND MONEY MATTERS. 4

19 Outside Resources Ohio Board of Nursing General Information For questions regarding approved programs, NCLEX-RN licensure, etc. in the state of Ohio visit the Ohio Board of Nursing Website. The Informed Approach Because a criminal history can have different effects at the educational, licensure, and employment levels, when a person is considering pursuing a nursing career, it is best to have as much information as possible prior to deciding to enroll in a nursing program. The Board encourages individuals who have criminal histories and who are interested in pursuing a nursing career to: (1) Contact approved nursing education programs and ask about the programs enrollment criteria with respect to criminal convictions; (2) Review the criminal history information available on the Board s website and (3) Contact healthcare facilities and inquire about hiring criteria with respect to criminal convictions. For additional information not listed please submit inquiries to: 19
