Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health, prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people.
Mesa Community College's Nursing Program is a part of MaricopaNursing, a consortium of Maricopa Community College Nursing Programs.
The Registered Nurse Program is four semesters in length, and combines classroom learning with experiential learning in the laboratory and clinical sites. The program has prerequisites and co-requisites.
Students who successfully complete the program will graduate from Mesa Community College with an Associate in Applied Science in Nursing and are eligible to apply for licensure as a Registered Nurse.
Program of Study for the RN Program.
MCC currently offers two program options for the Associate of Applied Science (RN) Program.
Traditional Option: This option consists of four semesters or "blocks", with fall (August) and spring (January) start dates. Classes generally meet two times a week for classroom instruction and one to two days a week in the clinical/lab setting. Many resources are available through the online learning management system (Canvas), so it is highly encouraged that students have access to a computer and internet connection.
Late Start Option: This option is offered five weeks beyond the traditional start date. Fall semester begins in September, and Spring semester begins in February. The classes are usually held two times a week combining classroom instruction with clinical or lab instruction. Experiences at clinical agencies tend to be toward the end of the semester. This option is a hybrid learning program. Hybrid classes reduce the required classroom time in exchange for participation in online activities. Technology skills, access to internet, and a computer are essential for course success. Go to www.mesacc.edu/elearning for more information.
