Nursing

Program Overview

Nursing jobs require the right candidate for a career where no two days are ever the same. If you have a caring nature, are a problem solver, and have a strong desire to help people – especially if they’re in a distressing situation – then consider a career in nursing.

Our Nursing program, approved by the Arizona State Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), will prepare you with the fundamental skills necessary to be successful as a nurse assistant, licensed practical nurse (LPN), or as a registered nurse (RN) in a variety of acute, long-term, and community-based healthcare settings.

Once you have completed the Nursing program, you will be eligible to apply for your nursing license and able to work in nursing jobs nationwide. We have additional program offerings, including nurse refresher programs for LPNs and RNs, nursing continuing education (NCE) courses, and innovative bridge programs for paramedics and veterans interested in pursuing a career in nursing.

Enroll in the Nursing program and take the first step toward your new career.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
