Nursing, Registered Nurse - Associate in Applied Science
(RN, AAS) LPN to RN Articulation Program
The Nursing Department is committed to providing a student learning environment which inspires life-long learning utilizing a spirit of inquiry to promote excellence in clinical competence, professional accountability, caring, and effective communication skills for a diverse student population. We believe these attributes will prepare our graduates to pass the NCLEX-RN®, and to provide and manage safe, cost-effective evidence-based care to meet Client Needs. The graduate will be prepared to coordinate, supervise and/or collaborate with members of the multidisciplinary health care team.
Students who need information regarding tuition, fees, and length of the nursing program may contact the Dean of Allied Health/Nursing at the College and/or the Director of Nursing.
The nursing program is designed to prepare students to function as entry-level registered nurses. Course work is directed toward assisting graduates to pass the National Council of Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The program is approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing at 3343 Peachtree Road, NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA., or ACEN.org. Applications are due August 31st for the spring semester and January 31st for the fall semester. For specific criteria and procedures for admission, consult Sandy Lane, Nursing Advisor, or Anita Krondak, Director of Nursing.
Students must complete 57 hours for the degree and earn a minimum C grade in all course work in order to graduate. (See the section on course descriptions for more specific information).
Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student’s responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
