All individuals who meet minimum enrollment requirements are eligible to apply to the nursing programs.

The handbook is extensive and may contain additional information not featured here.

The Registered Nursing Program at Merced College prepares students to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN) and is designed to prepare competent nurses for service in the community.  The Registered Nursing Program requires two academic years beyond the completion of the prerequisite courses and non-Nursing breadth requirements.  Graduates will earn the Associate of Science Degree upon completion of designated courses and competency requirements.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Merced College Registered Nursing Program is to prepare our students for careers as professional Registered Nurses by providing a continually-improving educational program which is accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing and by instilling in our students a commitment to continued professional growth and lifelong learning.
