The Nassau Community College - SUNY Empire State University Multi-Award Nursing Program (NCC - ESC) is a dual-degree, Multi-Award program, with the Associate in Science1 (A.S.) degree awarded by NCC at the completion of the fifth semester. This allows the student to take the National Council Licensure Examination2 (NCLEX-RN) and to earn the license of a Registered Professional Nurse (RN), required before entering the sixth semester of the program.
The Multi-Award program requires the completion of 124 credits3 (53 credits of Liberal Arts/ Sciences/ General Education and 71 credits of Professional Nursing Education). The program is designed to be completed in four (4) years of full-time study. This integrated curriculum includes classroom instruction at Nassau Community College, with on-campus laboratory and clinical placements throughout Nassau County. SUNY-Empire State College courses will be delivered using an online platform, with NCC as the home campus throughout the Nursing program.
