Students who would like to begin earning credits toward a nursing degree or diploma can enroll in the Nursing Preparation program. Students in this program will take a majority of the nonclinical courses required by NETC and several local colleges for the Associate Degree of Nursing program. Upon completion of these courses, a student may be eligible at NETC or transfer to one of several colleges in the area. The student is responsible for meeting the program requirements of each institution. Credits earned in this program can also apply to requirements for an Associate of Arts or Science degree.
Note: NETC's acceptance of transfer credits for this certificate does not guarantee transfer to nursing programs at other colleges.
