The Better Way to Become a Nurse

Admissions & Transfers

Make your dream of becoming a nurse a reality.

Whether it's your first step or your next step in your nursing career, we have a program to fit your needs. Our simple enrollment is conveniently offered four times a year with no waitlists or prerequisite classes for admission. Students can schedule day or evening and weekend classes that make it easier to balance work and family. We believe nursing school should be just as caring as the profession itself. That's why you'll have an entire support system by your side from the day you join our family.
