School of Health and Sciences - Nursing Program
About the Program
The Santa Fe Community College nursing program is approved by the New Mexico State Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). Students who successfully complete the nursing program receive the Associate in Applied Science degree (AAS) and are eligible to apply to take the National Board Examination (NCLEX-RN). This program articulates with the University of New Mexico’s Bachelor of Science nursing completion program.
Admission to the Program
All students interested in the nursing program must apply for admission both to SFCC and to the nursing program - see Admission Requirements and Admission Checklist. The nursing program is a full-time program with no part-time options and consists of four semesters to complete. Students are accepted in the fall and spring for the traditional track which runs four semesters with a summer break. Students with college degrees may apply for either the traditional track or the accelerated track which is a 15 month program (summer to summer).
Prospective students who have been convicted of a felony must have charges removed from their record in order to be eligible for the program due to state regulations. Background checks, fingerprinting, drug screening and vaccine requirements will be mandatory for students accepted into the nursing program.
