The Registered Nurse to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing program prepares registered nurses (RNs) to meet the many changes in the
healthcare field by expanding and enhancing their nursing education. The program is available to Registered Nurses only. This program
prepares graduates for leadership roles and graduate study in nursing. The graduate is prepared to utilize theory and research-based
knowledge in the provision of care to the client, family, and community in a global society with flexibility to adapt to the changing nature of
healthcare and healthcare roles. The graduate is also prepared to integrate care across multiple settings, managing the interactions between
and among components of the integrated network of healthcare services. The graduate will be prepared for positions in community health
clinics, private practice, hospitals, and patient care facilities.

Admissions Requirements
Students seeking admission to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program must hold a valid Registered Nurse license and shall have
completed sufficient college credit to attain the equivalent of third-year college status (e.g., 60 semester credit hours or 90 quarter credit
hours). Prospective students should also have completed an appropriate number of credit hours of general education (e.g., 15 semester credit
hours or 22.5 quarter credit hours). Semester hours will be converted to quarter credit hours using the standard formula of semester hours x
1.5 = quarter credit hours. For example: 3 semester hours equal 4.5 quarter credit hours.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Administration (BSNA) program is designed as a degree completion program to enhance career
opportunities for practicing Registered Nurses. This program prepares students with the appropriate academic skills for entry-level and nurse
supervisory positions in the healthcare field. Because this program prepares students to assume healthcare supervisory positions rather than
additional clinical responsibilities, no clinical hours are required and all applicants must have a valid RN credential.

The Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy provides the student with the necessary skills that are needed to advance into a supervisory position in a
general healthcare facility (e.g., hospital, clinic, medical office) or in an environment specific to the field of respiratory therapy. The curriculum contains
information on management and current issues and trends in healthcare, exposing students to the latest developments in respiratory care. The program
includes a general education component, a foundation in cardiopulmonary sciences, and coursework in the traditional respiratory care specialties of
critical care, perinatal and pediatrics, and cardiopulmonary diagnostics. The Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy degree is not accredited by
CoARC. All credits earned in the college’s Associate of Science in Respiratory Therapy program are transferable into the Bachelor’s program.
Requirements for Admission to respiratory therapy courses:
*Negative drug screen (a drug screen may be requested at any point in the student’s academic progression by school officials and/or clinical
placement sites). The costs of these tests are the responsibility of the student.
*Criminal background check with satisfactory findings.
*An admissions test is required. Check website and admissions department for details.

The Associate of Science degree curriculum in Respiratory Therapy includes supervised didactic, laboratory, and clinical learning activities followed
by standardized testing and performance evaluations. Students will begin with anatomy and physiology and advance to the latest mechanical
ventilators. In the clinical portion of the curriculum, students are assigned a clinical instructor or preceptor who provides supervision and instruction

able to demonstrate the knowledge and cognitive skills, technical proficiency, and personal behaviors required for competent performance in
providing the delivery and management of sophisticated diagnostic, therapeutic, and life support services, including ventilatory life support,
administration of medical gases and aerosols, and cardiopulmonary assessment and monitoring. Entry-level respiratory therapy positions in hospitals
and care centers are available to graduates of the program.

The Associate of Science Degree curriculum in Respiratory Therapy includes supervised didactic, laboratory, and clinical learning activities
followed by standardized testing and performance evaluations. Students will begin with anatomy and physiology and advance to the latest
mechanical ventilators. In the clinical portion of the curriculum, students are assigned a clinical instructor or preceptor who provides
supervision and instruction on every aspect of respiratory patient care. The curriculum objectives were derived from job analysis conducted
by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) based upon American Association of Respiratory Care practice guidelines. Students who
master the course objectives are able to demonstrate the knowledge and cognitive skills, technical proficiency, and personal behaviors
required for competent performance in providing the delivery and management of sophisticated diagnostic, therapeutic, and life support
services, including ventilatory life support, administration of medical gases and aerosols, and cardiopulmonary assessment and monitoring.
Entry-level respiratory therapy positions in hospitals and care centers are available to graduates of the program.
Requirements for Admission to respiratory therapy courses:
*Negative drug screen (a drug screen may be requested at any point in the student’s academic progression by school officials and/or clinical
placement sites). The costs of these tests are the responsibility of the student.
*Criminal background check with satisfactory findings.
*An admissions test is required. Check website and admissions department for details.
Students enrolled in this program must pass all pre-core courses prior to taking any respiratory therapy (RES) courses.
