ADN-BSN Concurrent Enrollment Program
The Concurrent Enrollment Associate of Applied Science/Baccalaureate Degree Nursing program allows qualified associate degree nursing students to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Northern Arizona University (NAU) while pursuing their associate's degree in nursing (ADN) at Pima.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP) provides an affordable course of study that, followed in sequence, enables students to complete their BSN degree concurrently with their associate degree.
Students enrolled in the program will follow the traditional course of study for all PCC students pursuing their associate degree in nursing, but at the same time they also will be enrolled in required NAU nursing courses. Because the NAU courses are taken online or in hybrid format, all courses will be offered in Tucson.
Upon completion of the PCC/NAU CEP (120 credits), graduates are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN licensure examination.
Nurses who have completed their BSN are highly valued by potential employers. PCC/NAU CEP graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills to begin their nursing career with a degree that will promote professional success and advancement.
