Welcome to the Nursing Program

Welcome to the Nursing Program at Cape Cod Community College (CCCC). We offer a specific sequence of courses that lead to the Associate in Science Degree. Upon successful completion of the degree program, the Coordinator of the Nursing Program will furnish documentation to the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing verifying that a student has met the legal responsibilities to be eligible for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX). CCCC Nursing Program graduates become licensed as Registered Nurses upon successful completion of the NCLEX-RN.

Program Options

The Nursing Program at CCCC is a full-time two-year program (five semesters which includes pre-requisites). Day and Evening Options are available. Advanced placement for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) is available through the LPN in Transition course. Prospective students to the Nursing Program at Cape Cod Community College have the opportunity to apply to either of these three options:

  • Day
