The curriculum for this nursing major has a dual focus--team-taught classroom theory emphasizing the technical and theoretical aspects of nursing, and concentrated, supervised, clinical laboratory experiences in several health-care agencies in central Kentucky.

The Associate of Science Degree Nursing Program prepares students to become registered nurses and also qualifies those students for admission into a RN-BSN Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program. Because the associate degree program emphasizes the importance of nursing classroom theory and clinical experiences, as well as liberal arts courses, each student is reminded that the nursing major places great responsibilities for time management upon the individual. The nursing courses must be taken in the following sequence, NSG 115, NSG 120, NSG 210, NSG 225 and NSG 230 and a grade of C must be earned in each before progressing to the next level.
