The Century College Associate Degree Nursing Program is designed to educate students who are prepared to begin professional nursing careers and administer safe, culturally competent patient-centered nursing care in a variety of healthcare settings in our increasingly diverse communities. The Nursing program is jointly sponsored and managed through a unique, cooperative arrangement between Inver Hills Community College and Century College. Coursework includes nursing theory focusing on holistic assessment, therapeutic nursing interventions including complementary/alternative modalities, communication, levels of prevention, critical thinking, collaboration and leadership/management concepts. Clinical application occurs in acute, sub-acute and long-term care facilities, community clinics, schools and home health settings. Safe, caring, competent nursing care across the lifespan is fostered. Graduates are awarded an associate in science degree in nursing and are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN and meet the Minnesota State Board of Nursing requirements for licensure. The Mobility Nursing Tracks are two and one-half semester tracks offered to qualified licensed practical nurses (LPN) and qualified emergency medical technician-paramedics (EMT-P). Both Traditional and Mobility nursing graduates have many lower division, MnTC/general education requirements needed to earn a baccalaureate degree in nursing. A Minnesota statewide nursing articulation agreement provides seamless transfer to students who pursue their bachelor's degree from any baccalaureate nursing program offered through the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System. Program costs listed below are approximate, and books and other fees are not included for general education coursework.
