The Maricopa Community College District Nursing Program (MCCDNP) is offered at nine Maricopa Community Colleges. A variety of course schedules are offered at selected sites and include full time, accelerated, part-time, and on-line options. Clinical experiences are provided in a variety of in-patient and out-patient settings. Students enrolled in the program rotate through health care facilities within a reasonable driving distance from the colleges. Nursing students work directly with patients, nurses, physicians, and other health care professionals and receive hands-on experience in all major specialty areas in community agencies, long-term care facilities, and hospitals.
Completion of the nursing curriculum and general education degree requirements prepares students to take the national licensure exam and apply for licensure as registered nurses. Licensing requirements are the exclusive responsibility of the State Board of Nursing.
