Note:  In order to progress through the nursing courses, students must demonstrate competence in both the theory and professional nursing practicum (clinical) components. Failing or withdrawing from any one of the semester’s co-requisite courses requires withdrawal from all of that semester’s co-requisite courses.
 
Students with previous nursing education who have been enrolled in a class will be given the opportunity to receive units and credit toward completion of the Associate in Science (A.S.) Degree program by challenge in theory and clinical performance (this is only after being enrolled in the class).
