The Nursing Department at Cloud County Community College prepares students to earn an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AAS) degree. At the completion of the program students are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN to practice as Registered Nurses. Nearly 1,200 nurses are graduates of this program with a large majority of them practicing in North Central Kansas and South Central Nebraska. CCCC has prepared students to earn an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing (AAS) since 1978, with recent expansion to offer two degree completion options. 

Students who wish to become Registered Nurses through our program have the following two options:
1. Generic Traditional Option - Capable students on the campus taking college courses appropriate to the nursing plan of study may apply to the generic traditional program to complete two years of nursing education.
2. LPN to ADN Advanced Standing Option - Students who are in a practical nursing program or are already Licensed Practical Nurses may apply as advanced standing students requiring one additional year of nursing education along with the required general education requirements.

In addition to the college application, these students must apply specifically to the nursing program.

While not specific to our program, students may also prepare for a baccalaureate nursing program by earning an Associate of Science (AS) at CCCC.
The NCLEX-RN pass rate and employment rate for CCCC graduates is consistently above the national average. 

With an escalating emphasis on higher education in nursing, many graduates from CCCC are demonstrating their motivation and commitment to life-long learning by taking advantage of BSN articulation options while maintaining gainful employment as an RN.
