Get a pulse on your future!

River Valley Community College can turn your dreams into reality by providing a high-quality education to prepare you for the career you’ve always imagined.

The pre-licensure Associate of Science Degree in Nursing (ASN) program for students with no previous nursing experience requires requisite courses and 2 years of focused nursing courses. Upon successful completion of the program and general education coursework, students will earn an ASN degree and will be eligible to apply for the RN licensure exam (NCLEX-RN).

Our program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). If you choose to pursue this degree to become a registered nurse, you should know that RN jobs are expected to grow 16 percent through 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In addition, the Gallup Poll results indicate that nursing has been the most trusted profession for over 20 years!

RVCC's  Nursing Class of 2018 and 2019 had a 100% NCLEX-RN Pass Rate! 

Students applying for the nursing program are required to attend a nursing informational session. Upcoming dates are listed below, and will occur with regularity until the deadline of December 31 each year.
