COC Nursing Student Perspectives

Approved by the California State Board of Registered Nursing, the College of the Canyons Registered Nurse program prepares students to assume the responsibilities of an entry-level registered nurse.

Upon graduation students are eligible to take the national licensure examination known as NCLEX to become a registered nurse.  Many COC nursing students take advantage of numerous collaborative options to begin the Bachelors of Science in Nursing while working toward their associate degree.
