Community College can do so by attending an upcoming Pre-nursing Information Session on Tues., Oct. 22 from 11:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m., or from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Nora Hagen Theatre on the Glen Oaks Campus.
This is a meeting for anyone who believes they will be ready for the Spring 2014 class and will be taking the TEAS
entrance test in December 2013, as well as first time inquiries.
The laddered Associate Degree Nursing Program at GOCC consists of Level I (Practical Nursing Program) and Level II
(generic students and current LPNs).
Upon successful completion of Level I, a Practical Nursing certificate is awarded. This certificate qualifies the graduate to
sit for the National Council Licensing Examination in Nursing at the PN level. When the graduate successfully passes the
examination, the nursing graduate can be licensed as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). LPN’s generally care for patients
in doctors’ offices, home health-care agencies, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
The Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree qualifies the graduate to sit for the National Council Licensing
Examination in Nursing at the RN level. When the graduate successfully passes the examination, the nursing graduate can
be licensed as a registered nurse. RNs perform a wide range of bedside nursing care and are employed in a variety of
settings, including hospitals, clinics, surgical centers, insurance companies, rehabilitation facilities, resorts, cruise ships,
nursing homes, the military and community and public health agencies.
The meeting will be one hour or less, and is for informational purposes only.
