NURSING is defined by the American Nurses' Association as 'the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations'. The IVC Nursing Program prepares both men and women for licensure to practice as a professional nurse. The program is open to students who are in good health, 18 years of age and older, and have successfully met the admission criteria. The RN Program is 4 semesters or 2 academic years in length, not including the Science and General Education (degree) prerequisites. Classes begin every semester with a class graduating every semester. Theory and lab (skills/simulations) classes are scheduled throughout the week , and clinical courses are offered on and off campus utilizing the local hospitals and healthcare agencies and out of town for psychiatric experience. A separate application is required when applying for the Nursing Program.
