The nursing courses extend over four academic semesters.
The total curriculum includes courses in general education as well as specific courses in biological sciences, physical sciences, behavioral sciences, and nursing science. Students typically complete the entire program in three years. Additional time may be required for students who need to complete remedial courses.
The general education courses and science courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The nursing courses are offered only during the regular academic semesters starting with the Fall Semester.
*The Fast Track Program for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and licensed paramedics is 12 months. All required general education courses, psychology courses, physical and biological science courses must be completed prior to entry in the program.
The Director of the Nursing Program or a Nursing Faculty member will meet with prospective nursing students to advise them in a plan of study. To accomplish this, the student MUST have available his/her ACT scores and previous college/university transcripts. Course descriptions for classes completed with a grade of “C” or better at previously attended colleges/universities, other than NEO A&M College, are also helpful. This will allow advisement on any potential deficiencies that must be removed prior to admission into the program. Once admitted to the program, students will be assigned to a nursing faculty advisor for the length of the program. It is recommended that students make an appointment to meet with their advisor prior to every semester and as needed.
