ADN Program Details
The Cochise College Nursing Program's mission is to educate individuals to provide for the current and future healthcare needs of individuals, families, and populations.
The Cochise College Nursing Program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and the Arizona State Board of Nursing. The program offers expert instruction, modern equipment, and a wide variety of clinical experience in hospitals and agencies throughout Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties.
The program is organized on the "career ladder" concept:
• At the end of the first year, students are eligible to apply to the
State Board of Nursing to take the licensed practical nurse
• Upon completion of the second year, students receive an associate
of applied science degree and are eligible to take the State Board of
Nursing examination to be licensed as a registered nurse (NCLEX-RN).
Completion of the program does not guarantee passing the state board examinations.
The nursing program teaches you practical skills and offers hands-on experience through a combination of lectures, laboratories, and clinical assignments.
Clinical sessions may be scheduled on weekdays, weeknights or weekends at hospitals and health agencies across Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties.
Lectures are provided on the Sierra Vista Campus one day a week with labs held on the Douglas, Sierra Vista, Benson and Nogales campuses. Students provide their own transportation to lecture, lab, and clinical assignments.
