Nursing Track 1: 2 Year Curriculum Plan

The VATNP offers an opportunity for recent high school graduates and other eligible adults to complete the nursing degree program after two years of full time attendance (4 semesters and 2 summer sessions). This is a rigorous and academically challenging program.

 

Students have the option to complete all general education courses required by the nursing curriculum and receive a Health Sciences certificate before beginning nursing classes. This option takes three years or longer depending on the amount of time taken to complete the general education classes. Many students, who have families, work or other responsibilities often choose this option.
