Program Overview

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will be core certified by receiving an Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) degree. The graduate qualifies to make application to a state board of nursing for approval to sit for the national NCLEX-RN examination. Passing the NCLEX-RN examination enables the registered nurse (RN) to practice in that state, and an opportunity to advance their academic education.

Admission Requirements

Prospective students must apply and be accepted by the College before making application to the ASNP. Acceptance to the College does not guarantee acceptance into the ASNP. Documents must be on file with the Office of the Registrar prior to the ASNP application deadline or the application will not be considered.


The ASNP is unable to accept individuals with a misdemeanor or felony history within five (5) years. If greater than five (5) years, graduation from the ASNP does not result in approval to sit for the NCLEX-RN examination. Inquiries related to approval to sit for the NCLEX-RN examination are directed to the state board of nursing where the individual plans to register for licensure.

  2. Send high school transcripts, GED, or HSE to the College
