Associate to Bachelor's Dual-Enrollment RN Program

HCC has developed plans to help students earn associate and bachelor’s degrees in nursing in as little time as possible, sometimes just four years. Completing the RN program at HCC and an RN to BSN program with a nearby university is much less expensive than spending two full years in a bachelor’s degree nursing program. HCC offers an associate to bachelor’s (ATB) program with Frostburg State University and Towson University where competitive applicants can take classes toward their associate and bachelor’s degrees at the same time, minimizing the amount of time needed to complete the BSN. Several other BSN options allow students to apply during the second year of HCC nursing courses and start taking courses toward their BSN online. Graduates of the nursing program are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Program Requirements Nursing (Registered Nurse), A.S.

Registered nurses (RNs) typically work in hospitals, as well as a variety of clinical and social service fields. Unlike licensed practical nurses (LPNs), RNs require two years of clinical coursework to prepare them to deal with any acute care situation that may arise. LPNs typically work in facilities that require long-term care such as nursing care facilities, medical offices, and home health care environments. Some LPNs also work in specialty facilities, such as psychiatric or rehabilitative institutions. The clinical coursework to become an LPN takes 10 months. After an LPN has worked full-time for at least six months, he or she has the option of pursuing an RN degree.
