New students entering the SVC Nursing Program will now earn a Direct Transfer Agreement Degree. The information on this page is intended for current students completing their Nursing ATA.

The Registered Nursing ATA Degree prepares students who are highly educated, technically advanced, competent and caring individuals to practice professional nursing in a variety of settings. In addition, it may prepare students interested in pursuing a degree at the baccalaureate level. The full-time program, located on the Mount Vernon campus, requires attendance in daytime lecture and lab classes, and both daytime and evening clinicals. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the examination for licensure as a registered nurse (NCLEX-RN). To learn more about the work life of an RN, read more…
