Full RN option:
The Associate of Science Degree in Nursing (Full RN) courses can be completed in as little as four semesters. The degree program is limited to those students who meet the admissions requirements, including all academic prerequisites.
Students in this program will take Prerequisite courses such as Anatomy & Physiology, English Composition, College Algebra, Microbiology, and General Psychology. These courses are designed to provide the basic knowledge and competencies need to progress in the nursing program. Prerequisite courses must be completed prior to the beginning of Concentration Courses.
Students in this program will also take Concentration courses needed to successfully complete the Nursing Program at Florida Career College. These courses will include studies in Medical-Surgical Nursing, Pharmacology, Pediatric Nursing, and Nursing Leadership. Once all Prerequisite and Concentration courses are successfully completed the student will graduate and then be able to take necessary exams to complete their state certifications.
Licensure and Certification
In all States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories, students must graduate from a Board of Nursing approved nursing program and pass a national licensing examination, known as the National Council Licensure Examination, or NCLEX-RN, in order to become licensed as a registered nurse. Other eligibility requirements for licensure vary by State. Please contact the Board of Nursing for details.
