The School of Nursing at Suffolk County Community College offers several programs leading to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S) degree. The Nursing curriculum is designed to prepare students for entry into practice as well as provide opportunities for students seeking transfer into a baccalaureate of science degree through articulation/joint admission agreements. In addition to courses required for the A.A.S degree, through an appropriate choice of elective courses, students may prepare for admission requirements to four-year colleges and universities. Specific course transfers are subject to the discretion of the institution. Information on articulation agreements between Suffolk County Community College and potential transfer institutions can be found at http://www.sunysuffolk.edu/Students/TransferOpps.asp. Upon award of the A.A.S. degree, graduates are qualified to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Professional Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
The Practical Nursing certificate program is designed to prepare students for entry into practice, as well as provide opportunities for students seeking admission into Advanced Placement RN programs. Through an appropriate choice of prerequisite and elective courses, students may prepare for the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S) degree admission requirements. Upon award of the Practical Nursing certificate, graduates are qualified to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN).
