CHIPOLA NURSING PROGRAMS APPROVED FOR NEW CURRICULUM

 

MARIANNA—The Board of Nursing recently approved significant curriculum changes for the Chipola Junior College Nursing Programs.

Students will now be admitted to both the practical (LPN) and associate degree (RN), together for the first year. The program will admit two classes per year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring, thus offering all nursing courses twice per year for the first time.  Also, enrollment capacity has been increased to accept up to 80 students per year.

All students will be required to take pre-requisite courses prior to entry.  Pre-requisites include Intermediate Algebra (MAT 1033) or College Algebra (MAC1105), General Psychology (PSY 2012), and Communications Skills I (ENC 1101).  To qualify for Anatomy and Physiology (BSC 2093) the first semester in the program as planned, students should take either Introduction to Biology (BSC 1005) or receive departmental approval to take Anatomy and Physiology (BSC 2093) without Introduction to Biology (BSC 1005). The new program also will allow students to take Anatomy and Physiology (BSC 2093) and Anatomy and Physiology II (BSC 2094), and Microbiology (MCB 2010) while in the program, rather than prior to acceptance. 

Additionally, all nursing students will be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN licensure exam following completion of the third semester in the program.  CJC students may then proceed in the program for two additional semesters and receive an associate of nursing degree and then be eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensure exam.
