NCC recognizes that not all nursing students follow the same goal-oriented approach, and therefore offers two career options: the associate degree to become a registered nurse (RN) or the practical nursing certificate for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN).
Each program is comprised of general education and nursing courses that include planned clinical experience. Nursing education provides the students with basic knowledge and skills necessary for competent beginning level practice. It prepares a caring and empathetic nurse, who functions as a self-directed learner and accepts responsibility for professional behavior.
