Upon completion of the associate degree, students are eligible to
take the NCLEX- RN licensure exam to become a registered professional
nurse (RN). Students may be eligible for a vocational specialist
certificate in practical nursing after completing the first year of
the nursing program and may take the NCLEX-PN licensure exam to
become a licensed practical nurse (LPN). Study in nursing emphasizes
individualized instruction and goes beyond the traditional classroom
by utilizing a combination of learning experiences such as hybrid and
online instruction, simulations, multimedia, small group discussions,
and laboratory practice. This approach places greater responsibility
on individual students for their education and encourages each to
develop the necessary skills for life-long learning.

The nursing program is approved by the Illinois Department of
Financial and Professional Regulation and is accredited by the ACEN
(Accreditation Commission For Education in Nursing) 3343 Peachtree
Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326, (404)975-5000,
www.acenursing.org. The basic nurse assistant training program is
approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
