The MGCCC Nursing Division offers three nursing education options:
The LPN to RN Transitional – Non-Hybrid Option is designed to assist qualified LPNs with the transition to RN practice via a classroom (face to face) learning environment. LPNs accepted into the non-hybrid option are awarded fourteen (14) semester hours of credit for previous nursing education. After successfully completing the summer transition course, NUR 1116 , students accepted into the non-hybrid option will by-pass the first year courses required of ADN graduates. As a traditional classroom driven curriculum, enrollment is limited.
To graduate, students enrolled in the non-hybrid option must successfully master the following: (1) The degree required academic support courses; (2)NUR 1116 , the summer transitional course (unless applicant completed the PN Exit Option at MGCCC and meets all requirements); and (3) the second year nursing courses. Credit for these courses plus the 14 credit hours for previous education equal the required fifty-two (52) semester hours to be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
The program is state accredited by the Mississippi board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning and nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326 (404- 975-5000)
