The Associate Degree Nursing – Advanced Placement option is designed for Licensed Practical Nurses who are returning to school with the intention of earning an Associate Degree in Nursing.  Students who are accepted into NUR 214 will begin the class in February, and if successful will move into the ADN curriculum in the summer.  The class is offered once a year only.

Advanced Placement involves meeting SCC admission requirements, ADN-AP Stage I, II, and III special admission requirements, and enrollment in the NUR 214 course (Nursing Transition).

Each academic year the college produces Program Sheets for every program offered at Sandhills Community College. This contains complete information about the program, contact information and the list of classes required for the degree, diploma or certificate offered. The requirements are the same as found in the catalog.

As the requirements could change from year to year, students should follow the course requirements for the academic year they enroll. All admission information, including prerequisites, are described in the Program Sheet below.
