About Us

Our 2-year Registered Nursing Program prepares nurses to assume responsibility for directing the nursing care of patients with acute and chronic illness. It also provides theory and practice for the student to develop the ability to perform preventative, therapeutic and rehabilitative intervention techniques. In addition to treatments and procedures (including medications and intravenous therapy), the program emphasizes patient education, psychosocial and cultural aspects, and bioethics.  

Upon completion, a student is awarded an Associate in Science Degree and is eligible to take the National Council Licensing Exam for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN).

How to Apply

  • Apply to CR using the CR Online Application
  • Submit an Application for the Associate Degree Nursing Program to the Health Occupations office during the application period, February 1 - 29.
  • All qualified applicants must take the ATI TEAS Exam as a final step in the application process. The TEAS Exam is given on campus, usually in late March/early April. All students are encouraged to log onto www.atitesting.com for TEAS study material and other useful resources and information. See program application for more information.
  • If you have already passed the TEAS Exam you will be prompted to have your scores submitted directly from ATI. 

Selection Process

  • A new class is admitted every Fall semester according to a prescribed selection process. (See application when available)

Prerequisites, requirements and important information


  • The Registered Nursing program has both prerequisite courses in English, Biology and Chemistry as well as suggested additional courses to take prior to beginning the program. Scheduling general education courses can be problematic once nursing courses begin. It is your responsibility to be aware of all prerequisites for all courses. General Education Requirements can change. Please speak with an advisor for clarification regarding prerequisites for all courses and see program application for more information.
  • All students are required to complete a Background Check(s).
  • A 10-panel urine drug screen is required 30 days before the beginning of your first clinical rotation and every Fall following a summer break. Positive results mean you cannot attend clinical per clinical agency contract. Inability to attend clinical will result in being dismissed from the course.
