Something New Is Coming….

To all students who are currently preparing to apply for the MaricopaNursing RN program – please be aware that all applications submitted on and after December 23, 2021, will require the completion of a Nurse Assistant (NA) course as a requirement for application. Students currently on the waitlist and those submitting applications prior to December 23, 2021 are NOT required to complete this requirement; however, due to the value of acquiring basic healthcare skills and concepts that are taught in NA programs, all applicants are strongly encouraged to consider completion of a NA course before beginning a MaricopaNursing program. Successful completion of a NA course is the requirement and certification and/or licensure while strongly encouraged, is not required to submit your MaricopaNursing application.

The next Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) application intake period will begin on December 1, 2021. A student must have an application in the MaricopaNursing database to submit a CEP application. If a person has his/her/their MaricopaNursing application in the database PRIOR to Dec. 23, 2021, and submits a CEP application at any time during the CEP intake period of December 1, 2021 through January 31, 2022, he/she/they will notbe required to have completed a NA course as the MaricopaNursing application was placed prior to the NA requirement deadline of December 23, 2021.
