The Nursing program prepares students to meet the health needs of a diverse population in a variety of dynamic community environments. The curriculum is divided among nursing theory, nursing clinical practice, general education and the sciences, where students participate in classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN for licensure.
The Nursing program is designed to be completed in five (5) semesters on a full-time basis. The curriculum may be taken on a part time basis, but the nursing courses must be taken in sequence. This degree program consists of open enrollment courses (general education and division specific) and program specific courses with limited enrollment. The open enrollment courses may be taken prior to entry into the limited enrollment courses. Details on eligibility for the limited enrollment courses can be found online in the Nursing Student Handbook.
Advanced Placement (LPNs, Military, and Nursing Transfer Students): Sinclair offers an advance placement into the nursing program for qualified Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) or equivalent military experience. After successful completion of the transition course (NSG 1500), students will receive articulated credit for ALH 1101, NSG 1400 and NSG 1450. Additionally, NSG 1200 and the science elective will be waived. Those students will continue to NSG 1600/1650. Students transferring from other nursing programs must meet criteria outlined in the online Nursing Student Handbook.
Registered nurses have a variety of employment opportunities. Workplace settings may include hospitals, extended care and long-term care facilities, rehabilitation programs, physicians’ offices, home health agencies and various types of clinics and outpatient services.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN for licensure.
