PRE-NURSING

This program offers students a chance to complete Pre-Nursing curriculum at LCOOCC and then transfer to various other schools of nursing for a BSN (Bachelors of Science–Nursing). This combined approach allows students to enter the exciting field of nursing well prepared to serve the healthcare needs of Native American people. Once the coursework is successfully completed at LCOOCC, students will then transfer to complete their final two years to obtain a Bachelor of Science. Upon graduation of a BSN, students are eligible to take the national licensing (National Council of State Boards of Nursing: NCLEX-RN) comprehensive exam to become licensed as a Registered Nurse.
