Nursing Program Curriculum Updates for Spring 2019

Please note that effective Spring Term 2019, the curriculums for both the Nursing/RN Associate in Science degree and the Transition to Associate Degree Nursing will undergo updates related to a program makoever that separates lab hours from the clinical course and integrates those lab hours into the lecture classes.

The Fall 2018 curriculum can still be viewed. Nursing Courses from that Fall version of the curriculum that are being removed from EFSC's course inventory will be in "teach-out" status, meaning they will be eliminated once students who entered under that prior version of the catalog have completed those courses.

The list below outlines the changes for both the general and transition tracks of the Associate Degree in Nursing and will be reflected in EFSC's 2019-2020 Catalog. Students beginning the program starting Spring 2019 will follow the curriculum with these changes in place.
